I'm stuck in a bit of a rut at the moment, not really doing much. I don't have a job and I'm trying to save money (but somehow have managed to spend a lot recently on books that I don't need). I have spent a lot of time sleeping now that my imminent essay deadlines are over, so nothing much to report. I did, however, go to York today and I saw 127 Hours at the cinema. What can I say? James Franco really does deserve an oscar for it. How incredible. Sickening, stressful, almost physically painful to watch, but absolutely brilliant. I can't really say much about it that hasn't already been said - that's the trouble with 'hype' films - but I was blown away. It isn't often that I really, desperately, intensely need to see a film, but I felt that way about 127 Hours, and I was not disapppinted.
