It's about process

I went and saw Tristram Shandy last night at the Brattle, along with Bill. Good to know that he will hang out with me sometimes again. It was a good, interesting movie. Should be seen far and wide. I like movies that have some uniqueness to them, that you can't really stick into an easy pigeonhole. Did anyone else see it?

i saw it about 2 months ago and really enjoyed it. i hadn't read the book - makes me want to!
i actually wished it had gone on longer, but i guess that's the nature of that story!

Yeah, I can see that. I have never read the book either, and it is my general impression that not too many people have really read it, including many of those who claim to have. It is perhaps better explained than read. But I really liked the movie. Or is it a feelm?

yeah, I am just sort of trying to convince myself not to read it before I go out and spend money on it.

Thanks for the tip. I'll look for it on IFC, Sundance, and/or the premium cable channels.

I saw that Steve Coogan was doing this and can't wait to see it locally, probably at the Lagoon. I've been a huge fan since I caught all of "I'm Alan Partridge"'s two series last fall on BBC America.
