In the winter of 1997 I was in L.A. on a job. I invited a woman to see a Buster Keaton movie at a place called Old Town Music Hall. She stood me up, but I went anyway and had one of the greatest nights of my life. I recently visited L.A. and went back to see another Buster movie at the Music Hall. Good to know such a place exists, you know?

There’s a touching documentary on HBO about Robert De Niro Sr., an accomplished painter. Worth watching.
“Woman in Red” 1961.
This movie looks good. And this post by Andrew Martin over at the New York Review of Books is cool.
More on Short Cuts. Dig this excellent documentary.
Tonight on HBO.
From Black Book:
“It’s been a favorite feeling in my whole life to be able to communicate without talking,” Harry Dean Stanton once said. “Communicating in silence in a powerful thing.”
