  • 22:25: _The Poll Diaries_ (@ AFI European Union Film Showcase) is coming-of-age film about a girl in 1914 Estonia. Nice camera, but didn't grab me.
  • 22:27: _Immortals_ (@ Majestic, 3D) has jaw-dropping visuals and heroic action. I loved every minute of it! Director Tarsem has amazing vision.

  • 22:44: Opening night at the AFI's European Union Film Showcase! Talked to Polish actress Joanna Kulig after the movie. She was so sweet! :-)
  • 23:25: Joanna and I must have talked for a good 5 minutes. We traded stories about my old CMU dorm-buddy Ethan Hawke, who was also in the movie.
  • 23:28: _The Woman in the Fifth_ (@ AFI EU Film Showcase) is perplexing, interesting French/Polish film starring Ethan Hawke & Kristin Scott Thomas.

  • 01:54: _In Time_ (@ Majestic) starts with an intriguing, original premise, but it just becomes a boring, sci-fi retread of _Bonnie & Clyde_.
  • 02:00: _Martha Marcy May Marlene_ (@ Bethesda Row, 10/28) is about a woman who joins then escapes from a cult-like commune. One of the year's best!
  • 02:05: _Margin Call_ (@ AFI, 10/22) is a taut drama inspired by the collapse of the real estate market. Great cast, but a doom-laden presentation.
  • 02:08: _Take Shelter_ (@ Bethesda Row, 10/21) is a fascinating film about a man compelled to build a storm shelter. Superb. One of the year's best.
  • 02:21: Jens Lekman (@ 6th & I St., 10/05) sang a bunch of new songs about heartbreak, not as upbeat & dancey as past shows. A little disappointing.
  • 02:23: Throwing Muses (@ Black Cat, 10/14) rocked like it was still the '90s! A totally awesome, fun show. Kristin Hersh is my rock 'n' roll queen.
  • 02:26: Smashing Pumpkins (@ 9:30 Club, 10/17) played only two fan favorites and mostly new material that featured Billy Corgan's guitar playing.
  • 02:30: WIld Flag (@ Black Cat, 10/20) weren't as tight as previous show, but seemed to have more fun. One of the better rock concerts of the year.
