Double Feature

As I mention below, Sujal and I went to see a double feature today — sort of our own lefty double feature: An Inconvenient Truth and A Prairie Home Companion. PHC was decent, though I was a bit baffled about why they tried to even provide the plot they did. we chuckled a lot during the film, just as we do when we listen to the show. Again, it was decent, but I think life will go on if you do not see it.

Meryl Streep is great as is Lily Tomlin (and even Lindsay Lohan). Streep and Tomlin nail the Minnesotan zeitgeist.

    You know you’d think that me living in the area the Pprarie Home Companion originates from,and is based off. I would have seen the movie allready. But it has’nt even come to the theater in the small town I live in. Hopefully they do a better job of capturing Minnesota then Fargo did. A lot of people who’ve seen Fargo think we actually talk that way.

    Truth be told, Streep and Tomlin parody the Minnesotan way of life, as does Garrison Keillor on his weekly radio show. I thought Fargo also captured it well, again as a parody. To the outsider, Minnesotans have this distinct sense about them. I’ll never forget my first job interview in Minneapolis where the board interviewing me asked me if I knew what Minnesota Nice was. I didn’t. Their explanation: “Oh, Minnesotans are nice people.” Thanks for visiting, Rick.
