Watching a movie in the second row, I’ve decided, creates an entirely different dimension to a movie that perhaps the filmmakers did not intend. I am fairly sure, for instance, that the setting of Please Give was not supposed a world where radiation from the sun has caused a race of hugely tall people to take over New York City. Although with all the talk of tanning, microwaves, and larger apartments in the film, perhaps I am onto something here.
(P.S. It’s awesome, go see it.)
