Chantal Akerman June 6,1950- October 6, 2015

Chantal Akerman, the Belgian director of one of my favorite films, Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles has passed away at age 65.

Because of her and this movie, breaded chicken tenderloins and breaded veal have been a staple dish at my dinner table, and I follow the character's meticulous preparation to a tee.

Friday Afternoon Viewing: The Martian

Poop taters.
Project Elrond.
Marvel geekery NOT run amok.
Matt Damon's character sciencing the hell outta stuff so he could survive on Mars for, like over 500 days, or 'Sols' until rescue.

I love this movie.
