Sunday L and I went to see the J. Edgar Hoover movie. I didn’t know until the very end that it was directed by Clint Eastwood but when I saw the credits I had that “ah-ha” moment where I should have known it was a film of his: it was slow damn slow. I like Clint and an actor I really do, but as a director… omg I can feel myself aging at the pace his movies move.
That being said, the movie was pretty interesting and if even ½ of what they portrayed was true. OMG J. Edgar Hoover was a nut job, a creepy, sneaky, nut job.
I like Judy Dence as an actress, I liked her character in “The Chronicles of Riccick” and I liked her in the 007 movies, but I have to look those up to remind myself of that. What I don’t have to look up is when she plays a whack-a-do and let me just say J. Edgar Hoover and his mom had a wickedly strange relationship. Judy portrayed the Mom in a way that just gave me the creeps. So much so that I couldn’t help but compare it to her role in “Notes on A Scandal”.
To end the weekend I made mushroom risotto for dinner. You thought I was going to say something like chocolate risotto… is there such a thing? Anyway dinner was a success, and since Rissotto calls for white wine I opened a bottle of Aigle, Chablais. If I didn’t occasionally cook with wine the bottles would never get opened. Since I opened it I had to try a sip. Lord am I a lightweight. I small glass later and it goes right to my head, but I must say: I like this wine So now I have ¾ of a bottle of wine I need to cook with… just call me Julia Child.
