I saw the first half of Battle of the Sexes (2017) on a plane. An interesting movie that I want to finish: it's about the lead-up to the tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs in 1973. Both Emma Stone and Steve Carrell do a great job developing their characters (as usual), but I also really like Jessica McNamee as the more conservative tennis star Margaret Court. Margaret's appraisal of
Billie Jean and her hair dresser's relationshipwas delivered in such a dry and immediate way. Her manner matches a later scene where she speaks without thinking
Billie Jean is the best tennis player in the world. She feels like a credible foil to Billie Jean.
Ohmygod I've been suggesting Godard movies to help in my French practice groups for the past 2 weeks and I have to watch one by tomorrow afternoon. I watched Breathless last week which is soooooooo stylish. I'm also trying to get access to Kembra Pfahler movies because um she sounds amazing but I'm having trouble finding them.
Sansho the Bailiff. Despite being heart-wrenching at times, it's probably the most optimistic film I've seen by Kenji Mizoguchi.

Last movie I watched was Danish Girl. It was on Netflix, partners friend had recommended it to her, so we gave it a watch. Her friend said it was "inspirational"...well let me tell you, damn thing is spectacular but had me in tears from start to finish. Had a headache for days afterwards...
Where there's smoke, there's fire. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. So just shut up, and bring some water.
