    The Valet

    My parents are fans of the original French film, so I put this on while they were in town, naturally.

    Great cast!

    Most of all though, I loved seeing the Pico Union neighborhood get the big-screen treatment-- I lived at the intersection of Pico Union and Koreatown for the first 3 years I lived in LA, and it's such a vibrant area.

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    ★★★★½

    Now here is a genuine movie that captures so many aspects of a relationship in the most honest way possible, even when the film dips its toes into the realm of science-fiction.
    Watching this movie, I got the feeling that I was watching a real relationship blossom and break, and although Kate Winslet went a little into the MPDG range, her character totally spun it around in the end. Much like Adaptation--also penned by Charlie Kaufman--the film is impressive not…
