Snow day! Today, we even called everybody up to make sure stuff was still happening.
R. Stevie Moore at Johnny Brenda's, 8 p.m.: Still on, as far as they know!
Free screening of Belle De Jour at L'Etage, 7:30 p.m.: still on!
Have you ever fantasized about becoming a high-class call girl? Well now you vicariously can, because when you watch a movie its all actually happening in your mind.
France's living porcelain doll, Catherine Deneuve stars as bourgeois housewife Severine, who indulges her fetishistic fantasies by becoming a daytime, high-class prostitute in this erotic satire from provocateur Luis Buñuel. Belle de Jour plays out like a late-sixties daydream, as it explores desire and discovers where the true site of sexual pleasure lies- in the mind.
Unsure how I feel about the terminology "living porcelain doll," but this movie is excellent.
