Sobriety Sorrows and Top Ten MIFF Films
July 5, 2013 § 2 Comments
With the Melbourne International Film Festival approaching at the end of this month, I have been pouring over the program with a red pen, eagerly whittling down my list to fit with my ten session pass. A welcome distraction on this Friday night, as it is my first weekend of a booze-free month in Dry July. Eating porridge on the couch in my running gear with Busby on my lap, the newspaper spread out in front of me and cursing myself for staying up ‘late’ (it was presently 12.30 pm) is not my normally a token Friday night for me. Don’t get me wrong, I am loving being alcohol free so far. I’ve been getting up super early every morning and going for jogs with the pooch, re-organising my life, eating super well, cooking heaps of fresh food and doing weird healthy things I normally can’t keep up for more than two days (Chlorophyll? Epsom salts? Who am I?). I only just found it hard today being the weekend and I began to feel a little…well, bored.
Blahhhh enough whining. But seriously, it is all for a good cause, and if you feel like sponsoring me and the gals feel free to do so here.
Anyway I am supppperr excited for MIFF this year, and I think I have my picks. Here are the films you can be sure to spy me at with a bucket of popcorn…
1. Frances Ha
3. I Am Devine
5. On The Beach
6. Mood Indigo
8. Camille Claudel 1915
9. Scatter My Ashes At Bergdorf’s
10. Bayou Maharajah: The Tragic Genius of James Booker
I’d love to know your picks!
