I just tried to watch Filthy cities (Paris) on the ABC’s Iview. Not the thing to watch over breakfast. Disgusting. Should come with a vomit warning.
After it cooled down on the weekend I went to see American Hustle – again. I noticed the script more this time – its pithy, funny and in some cases, poetic without being unrealistic. All qualities which one might expect because of Russell’s experience as a writer. Still haven’t finished my poem yet though. I was there to pinch lines and ideas, but I didn’t take any notes. Too busy enjoying it without having to strain my neck.
I feel like the poem is stuck because I can’t legitimately engage in the feelings which inspired it. Talking about the characters feels just a little forced right now. But I know its worth pursuing.
