Gates of Heaven, have you seen it? It's a great documentary made in 1978 by Errol Morris--same guy who gave us The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara (2003).
Gates of Heaven begins by introducing us to a couple characters who have opened Los Altos Foothill Pet Cemetery near Napa Valley, CA. Mostly they're in it 'cause they love their pets and hate the idea of our beloved companion animals being rendered into tallow after death. They're all heart. Unfortunately

Iím late to the party. This cinephile has no excuse. And I am a bit embarrassed to address my cultural faux pas. OK, I might as well get it out on the table. I just watched Federico Felliniís 8 Ĺ for the very first time. Nope, I didnít say twentieth timeófirst time. Can you believe it? I know, I really canít either. But I must embrace this truth and get on with it. Better late than never? In this case, yes, yes, yes!

I have cinema fever. Because there are no new movies worth mentioning, I'll write about actors and actresses. Some I love and some I loathe. Here are the lists. Each actor and actress is described with one word. Sometimes one word is all it takes.
Tilda Swinton ~ Sharp
Julianne Moore ~ Brave
Jodie Foster ~ Intelligent
Penelope Cruz ~ Intense
Nicole Kidman ~ Classy
Kate Winslet ~ Firey
Angelina Jolie ~ Hot
