This and that

Ahh, I’ve been working hard but I’ve got Friday off. Yesterday I had to work from home and watch the kids for about half the day because K was sick.

Russian Ark is playing at the Brattle starting Friday night and I think it’s worth seeing in an actual movie theatre.

On the 23rd of December an unprecedented event will take place in St Petersburg. Inside the Hermitage the film director, Alexander Sokurov, will shoot a feature-length film, The Russian Ark, in an hour and a half of real time. The camera will be switched on and ninety minutes later switched off after proceeding through thirty-five rooms, crossing four centuries, and re-enacting history on the grand scale by means of an array of sophisticated effects. As many as eight hundred and fifty actors and extras will take part in some of the scenes in this unique production.
