The Week in Entertainment

Film: Beginners - I know some people find it faux-naive or sentimental or what-have-you. I personally enjoyed it tremendously. I thought it was brilliantly done. A film about a very sad person which was not itself sad, but funny and ultimately uplifting.

DVD: Finished up Leverage in time for the new season to start! Deja Vu, which was pretty good. A few echoes of Laura, but tense and exciting and demanding you pay attention, not a bad thing in a thriller.

TV: The Scarlet Letter - the Lilian Gish silent version, which I liked, actually. Quite good.

Read: Some more of the Simonov. The Oriental Casebook of Sherlock Holmes, which is a bit repetitive if you read all the stories at a go, but otherwise entertaining. Riccardi caught Doyl Watson's voice nicely. The Alchemy of Murder, a fairly entertaining Nellie Bly story, though it was a bit too long. And I started Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, which is intriguing.
