Smoke gets in your eyes
I'll just come right out and say it. I'd like to be George Clooney's baby mamma. Wait, wait! Let me explain. I'm not some suburban matronly type who's been swooning over him lo these many years. I've always thought he was a passable actor and a very charming guy, but after seeing his movie Good Night And Good Luck last weekend, I want to devote my life to pleasing him. It's a bit of genius in my opinion, and having no genius of my own, it's been a pipedream of mine to glom off someone else's and bask in its reflected glory. OK, it's not a MLK kinda dream, but it's mine and who are you to judge? Have y'all seen this flick? Wonderful. I love the way it was shot. The performances are great, including George's. And he co-wrote AND directed it. Plus, could it be more timely with the whole Bush administration 'surveillance' brouhaha that's brouhahaing? I still favor Brokeback Mountain for the Best Picture, but this movie definitely gets the prize for the SMOKIEST film I've seen in this or any year.
