Recently Anja posted about it here, and despite the fact that I work in a library with a well-stocked audio-visual library, I never got around to signing it out. Part of the reason why is because watching movies on a 10" laptop isn't really ideal, but we have a proper, hand-me-down television set and a DVD player now (although I am still so annoyed that we can no longer get PBS via rabbit ears).
Anyhow, Geoff and I currently live around the corner from Marquee Video, which I am so excited about; we stopped in the other day and I rented Valerie and Her Week of Wonders. I watched it last night and it was fantastic. It made absolutely no sense to me, but that didn't matter. It was captivating, it was creepy, the look of it was beautiful -- everything I want in a film, really. I also adore the way the Czech pronounce "Valerie." Kind of "Vah-leree-yay." It's singsong-y.
Broadcast, a band I really love, have a song called "Valerie," which was inspired by the movie. It's based on a theme that is repeated throughout. I've been listening to this song since 2003 without realizing its original inspiration!
