a very short movie review: the english patient (oscar movie # 7)
me: so, what’s the verdict?
boy: how is it possible that after 3 hours, i don’t care about any of these characters?
me: i don’t know. i just kept watching, hoping that something would happen that made sense or that i would give a crap about.
boy: yeah. perhaps it would have been better had they just cut it in half?
me: and titled it “be patient” instead of “the english patient”.
boy: yeah. well, it’s 3 hours of my life i’m not getting back again. fargo should have won instead. even jerry maguire was better, and that’s saying something.
me: i agree.
boy: what are you doing?
me: i’m trying to remember a time before we started watching the movie…i can’t.
