Get my DIA on!

On Saturday, my friend Laurie and I will head down to the Detroit Institute of Arts. I have a special project I'm working on and a need a few pictures of me taken in the galleries. Also, I'm going to buy a seat in the Take Your Seat program, and we'll watch Holy Motors! My friend Glenn in Toronto told me that it's a pretty remarkable film, it's French so I'm definitely down with that. I need to keep listening to French so it won't be so alarming when I travel to Paris this June.

And speaking of that, I need to listen to my Speak French cd that I bought months ago. I tried to download it onto my ipod, but it only downloaded a portion of it. When I visit Canada, they have most things in English and French, but one must really immerse themselves into a foreign language to get the gist of it to use for holiday traveling. So that's my goal in between my studies this term.

  1. Holy Motors stars Denis Lavant, my favorite French actor (I LOVED him in Beau Travail by Claire Denis, a film that Steve Mc Queen has listed as one of his fav movies too!!). But I found Holy Motors a bit disappointing: very good moments, but weak moments too. You'll tell me your opinion! And I hope Laurie's photos of you will be fantastic!
