Item the second: What was that? I bought a ticket to Drawing Restraint 9 even after I heard it was about whaling because "The film concerns the theme of self-imposed limitation and continues Matthew Barney's interest in religious rite, this time focusing on Shinto" sounded really intriguing. I'll do more of an actual writeup at some later date, but my current thoughts definitely include, "After Dancer in the Dark I should have sworn off Björk productions."
I keep coming out of bizarre and/or depressing films at like 9:00 at night and thinking, "I would love to talk to one of my friends" and completely blanking (in large part because I totally overthink and am overcautious about when's an appropriate time to calll people). Emma, you're totally on the list once you're back at Smith.
