    ... you know those nights where you'd planned on a night out with the boys & because it's suddenly gotten too cold, you've just felt the dreaded first nostril-twitches of the sniffles?

    So you decide to do the right thing & stay home as the responsible citizen you are & watch a movie instead ...

    From the 2021 Fantastic Film Festival [<-- link].

    PS: Director Karim Ainouz has listed his Top 10 Criterion Collection Movie List - it's an interesting & informative read.

    Highlight was the return of Melb Cinémathèque @ ACMI & seeing familiar faces once again after such a long time.

    A great idea to continue from when the Program suddenly shut-down due to Covid-19 Lockdown, though the packed cinema was confronting & that odour from the upstairs Gunk (popcorn) Cart is just disgusting.

    Let's go up to my apartment. It's only a few ruins away from here.

    Bombed out Berlin was gobsmacking with…
