G’s birthday balloon
from two months ago continues to wander my place like a creepy old
voyeur. It particularly likes to sneak its way into my bedroom, which
Monday’s movie: Kinky Boots
I watched this cute little movie before heading out to Hot Docs tonight. While in the vein of The Full Monty and Waking Ned Devine, this movie didn’t really do much for me. The premise is cute: old shoe factory is dying and to revive business son gets the idea to create a line of transvestite footwear. Chiwetel Ejiofor is excellent as Lola/Simon and overall the cast is strong, however, I just couldn’t get in to it. There are a few good laughs and the music is not bad but there is nothing ‘kinky’ about his movie. I believe this is out in very limited release here in Toronto. Personally, I’d hold off and rent it.
Brent’s rating: 6 out of 10.

Wow, I really like your furnitures. It’s really modern-look.
u guys have a stylin’ living room.
Awww.. so you cried too at the film? Glad that you liked it.
Wow first thing I wanna say is I like the furnitures of your home! The balloon looks really nice, why not let it stay a little bit longer Hehe…I wanna see the Kinky boots as well. Is it a British film? And such a sad doc…but worth watching.
I read about the Megumi Yokota Story in one of the weekend paper. Oh, I got to see it. And the balloon – your description of it being a “creepy old voyeur” is so fitting. Need a pin? (I was just kidding G!)
