I'm surprised I'm still up since I didn't sleep much yesterday and almost fell asleep during the second movie last night. I saw:

"Crazy Love" - the Bronx in the '50s: Burt sweeps Linda off her feet, Linda finds out he's married, Linda breaks it off and soon gets engaged to someone else, Burt gets really really jealous and arranges an act of violence against her, he goes to jail, and when he comes out, they get married, and have been together for 28 years! This was a big New York tabloid story, and now it's a fascinating and disturbing documentary.

"Youth Without Youth" - since I'm behind in reading, I wasn't aware of this latest film by Coppola or that it's 28% on Rotten Tomatoes. It's nominated for cinematography (gorgeous), but it reminded me of David Lynch's awful "Inland Empire." A professor gets struck by lightning and becomes young and omniscient, and there's a girl and Nazis and much confusion.

The buzz in the theater was about Heath Ledger. Sad, and we weren't far from where he lived.

The puzzles were ready so I went to the Times afterward and didn't get home until after 3 a.m. I got online, read about the movies, read about the MIT Hunt, and still haven't had anything to eat. Forget crazy love, this is Crazy Schedule.
