Movies That Inspired Me To Do Something…and what I did about it:
You Can Count on Me: Got more organized.
Red (Three Colors Trilogy): Watched more French films.
Something’s Gotta Give: Inspired me to go to France.
Roman Holiday: One day (New Year’s Eve, 2004) I decided to have a “Roman Holiday” of my own and did exactly what I wanted. It was one of the best days ever. I went to this expensive restaurant in Brentwood (Tennessee) and ordered lunch there. I went to see The Aviator, a film I knew was going to be good. Then I went to a Russian or Eastern European candy store my friend told me about. Then I went to the mall to buy a shirt and/or skirt for a party. Then I drove three hours to Knoxville and went to a New Year’s Eve party! (I think I picked up some soft drinks on the way for the party, including Cherry Pepsi or Coke. Everyone liked it, so it went pretty fast!) That’s what I remember doing, but I may have done other things too.
An Education: Checked out more Juliette Gréco.
L’amour l’après-midi/Chloe In the Afternoon There’s life before Eric Rohmer. And life after.
Bonnie and Clyde: Checked out the original Bonnie & Clyde car (IRL) at a casino on the California/Nevada border (the car from the movie is in Texas and I haven’t been there yet).
The Secret of Kells: Got my helix pierced (did it the day after I saw the film).
