BLUE CAPRICE (September 13)
My birthday is coming up, and since I'm strapped for cash to spend on extra-ordinary things like movie tickets (going to the movies is extra-ordinary? Dear lord, what is happening?), I'm letting any friends out there know that I'd like to go see this movie as a birthday present. You want to see a movie about the snipers who terrorized the Washington D.C. beltway area for your birthday? Yes. Yes I do. I grew up in the D.C. area, and was a teenager at the time of the shootings, living just down the street from one of the sites. I am mighty curious to see my home turf on screen, as well as to how the events are played. It was a very strange, almost detached time. People really did lock their doors and stay inside.
