watching: broken english

I've been on sort of a Parker Posey kick since seeing her earlier this week, so I decided to watch Broken English again. I saw it back in 2007 when it was first released, but I had forgotten about it. I liked it much better the second time anyway.  If you haven't seen it, I recommend it. It's a small, quiet film about life and love written and directed by Zoe Cassavettes and starring Parker Posey and Melvil Poupaud (whom I have developed a very serious crush on.) It's also set in New York & Paris, so that's a bonus.

Speaking of Zoe Cassavettes, did anyone else see "Hi-Octane" - the short-lived series that she & Sofia Coppola did for Comedy Central back in 1994? I know I must have some episodes recorded on VHS somewhere. Sadly, there isn't much material on youtube, but I did find this...
And this with the Beastie Boys....
