Lent: Part 7

The Lion in Winter (1968) – Several times while watching this, I began to drift off to sleep. Perhaps it was the way I was laying, or perhaps it was the drawn-out pace of the story, but every time I was on the brink of not paying attention, the movie gave me something to wake up. Lines like “How dear of you to let me out of prison” and “Of course he’s got a knife! We’ve all got knives! It’s 1183 and we’re barbarians!” and little plot points like Anthony Hopkins being gay for the king of France.

    My Two Cents: Part 7

    I had a raid tonight, so I confess I wasn’t really paying attention. Lots of ratty clothes and funny hats. I think maybe it was about clowns.

        For all that I gave you shit for going to sleep at 8:45, I ended up going to bed at like 9:30. Maybe there was something in the air…
