Saw an interesting little movie tonight called "Layer Cake." It's a morality tale about high level drug dealers in London. As you can imagine, no character is to be trusted to be telling the truth. And even though it's a movie cliche -- the "one more deal and then I'm out" plot works in this movie. Michael Gambon plays the top-of-the-food-chain drug dealer -- and he's pretty convincing.
I've been reading lots of articles this year about what a terrible year Hollywood is having at the box office. Today's articles were along the lines of "Batman does well, but doesn't pull ticket sales out of the doldrums." There were 3 of us in the auditorium tonight -- for the 7 p.m. show -- so I guess I witnessed the doldrums first hand.
