Elegance is Refusal

I missed this documentary at this year's SIFF, but I'm looking forward to seeing it when it's released next month.

Image of the Day

A lake in Camargue, France, turned a surreal shade of red 
as a result of a phenomenon caused by the water's 
high salt content.

A Game You Couldn't Win

James Fogle, who wrote Drugstore Cowboy while serving a 20-year sentence for robbing a pharmacy in Western Washington, died last week in Monroe prison at age 75. Gus Van Sant's adaptation easily makes my top-10-of-all-time list (and is the reason why I never, ever put a hat on a bed).

A Northwest classic. RIP.
