Starz Cinema delivers

It is Channel 347 here and one of the Starz movie channels.  It often fills out evenings.  Tonight the film "Chocolat" was seen.  Released in 2000, it was obviously one of those films that came out during frenetic work years that were unhealthy in many ways as well as limiting as time to see movies.  With Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, and others, it was a charming story set in a French village in 1959.  The setting, the music, and the acting all worked.  Last night there was the film "Elle" with Isabelle Huppert in a somewhat disturbing yet absorbing thriller.  It was directed by Paul Verhoeven and had the kinks to prove it. Huppert was special.

Both nights came after relatively full days with, as always, a heavy dose of reading and no television other than news.  Films help round out the day and 347 often does the job.  Now a half hour to read the current book and then sleep.
