🦋 El dia de los padres

Woo-hoo! My very own day! (Happy Father's Day to those of you who meet the requirements.)

Our family activity for today was going to be a drive down to the shore and playing on the beach; but alas, the weather is not such as to make that work out well. So instead, we're going to take the train into town this afternoon and watch Monsieur Verdoux at the Flim Forum.

🦋 Soundtrack

Here is something I did not know Charlie Chaplin could do: compose excellent scores for a movie soundtrack. He is credited as writer, director, and composer for Monsieur Verdoux; and the music is great. The writing and direction also! Too bad the idea for the movie (which Chaplin bought from Welles) isn't really up to the quality of Chaplin's talent. It seems insubstantial to me, a trifling comedy of manners that Chaplin tries to turn into a fable about capitalism and morality.

🦋 At the movies

Sylvia did pretty well with watching Monsieur Verdoux last night, paying attention to the plot and the characters, giving indications she understood what was going on. She lost interest about a half hour before the end of the movie though. (It is 2 hours long.)

Before the feature there was a preview for Encounters at the End of the World; Sylvia asked if that was what I had seen the other night and said she wanted to see it, but at home, "So we could make it softer."
