READIN

Jeremy's journal

He'd had the sense, moments earlier, that Caroline was on the verge of accusing him of being "depressed," and he was afraid that if the idea that he was depressed gained currency, he would forfeit his right to his opinions. He would forfeit his moral certainties; every word he spoke would become a symptom of disease; he would never win an argument.

Jonathan Franzen

Sideways

We saw Sideways tonight and I was just blown away. I don't think I have been so moved by a buddy movie, with the possible exceptions of Y Tu Mama Tambien and Thelma and Louise. For a while I was feeling really resentful of Jack and Stephanie for having such a good time when Miles and Maya were really much more deserving -- this was of course a facile and limited reaction, and I recognized it as such. Really, a beautiful movie -- go see it if you have the chance.
