Finally saw the film, “Mixed Doubles” yesterday, after much should we/shouldn’t we. The tickets in the multiplexes are so expensive; the show timings are odd; it’s an adult film, and we have to make http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gifarrangements for our daughter; there’ve been so many films released this last couple of weeks, and so on.
But ultimately, because so many of our friends have worked on the film, we went to see it out of loyalty. Given our reluctance to go for the film, we were pleasantly surprised. Didn’t get bored for a minute, and came out feeling it was money well spent, which happens rarely these days. But once we are in the car, we MUST analyze, tear apart the fabric of the film, and put it together again. Our daughter’s used to this by now, though it was hard for her initially to accept our hair-splitting discussions on films she had thoroughly enjoyed.
