the_swimmer

Joan: Are you a friend of Biswangers?
Ned Merrill: They’re not even on our Christmas card list.
Joan: Then what are you?
Ned Merrill: I’m an explorer.
Joan: No, I mean, what are you doing here?
Ned Merrill: I’m swimming home.
Joan: You, uh, you married?
Ned Merrill: What’s that got to do with it?
Joan: Are you divorced? What?
Ned Merrill: Do you wanna come with me?
Joan: Where?
Ned Merrill: A long a river of sapphire pools.
Joan: I never heard anyone talk like you.
Ned Merrill: Come with me. Be my lover.
Joan: Oh. That I’ve heard before.
Ned Merrill: Not from me.
Joan: You’re no different than any other guy.
Ned Merrill: Oh, but I am. I’m a very special human being.

TCM Film Festival and April 2013 New-To-Me Films


April was a crazy month for me. I watched more films than I had in any other month this year (though not as much as some months in 2011). I also went to the TCM Classic Film Festival for the third year in a row, during which I was featured in a promo that aired on TCM over the weekend. You can watch it here. That said, I watched A LOT of film this month and a lot of them were in theatres. Oh, I also saw two of my all-time favorite films on the big screen at the Castro Theatre this month: Pretty in Pink and The Last Unicorn. After the cut is all of the films I watched this month. I have cheated below and picked seven films to talk about instead of the usually five. I make my own rules!
