Uh, yeah, so Christmas is in, like, a day and a half so not a lot of DVD watching got done this week. Here's what I watched (all 2 of them!):
December 15: The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985) - one of Woody Allen's absolute best. Mia Farrow delivers a stellar performance as a Depression era movie lover who finds herself pursued by a man who literally walks off a movie screen. Alternately funny and sad, this is a beautiful.
December 16: Queen Christina (1933) - this one is pretty much neck and neck with Ninotchka as my favourite Greta Garbo movie. It takes a lot of liberty with history (to put it generously) but it makes for a pretty great story.
