    It's been too long since I've seen Interview With the Vampire or The End of the Affair.
    Just because...
    Touch Me Not (Adina Pintilie, 2018) warm
    Madame Hyde (Serge Bozon, 2017) mild
    O Fantasma (Joo Pedro Rodrigues, 2000) warm

    The last book I read was...

    Surprised at the low ratings for the Butcher Boy. I thought it was pretty solid.

    My one viewing of The Crying Game was in theaters when I was 13. It was part of a double feature with Indian Summer and I knew nothing about either movie going in. I remember really enjoying The Crying Game I should watch it again.

    I counted The Butcher Boy among my favourite films a few years back. I should rewatch it. Jordan in general is quality.
