November was a pretty busy month for me, so I only saw two movies and one musical. Slacker!


Inside Job is a fascinating, compelling documentary on the recent financial crisis, and it made me so sad/mad--smad!

Love and Other Drugs was almost really good, but not quite. I am all in favour of naked Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway, both of whom are very pretty. I am emphatically not in favour of the terrible boorish brother character, who I wanted to punch repeatedly in the nose. Seriously, he brought the movie down at least 2 letter grades. If they'd excised him entirely from the film, it wouldn't have made a lick of difference to the plot, and there would have been time for more naked pretty people scenes! Missed opportunity, people.


I also saw the west coast premiere of a new Canadian musical: Mimi, or a Poisoner’s Comedy, based on the true story of a murderous 17th century marquise who poisoned her father and brothers. The music was decently interesting, the performers were hamming it up enjoyably, and I liked it quite a bit!
