Maria Full Of Grace

    5 March 2005, the wee hours

I had planned to see Magneta Lane tonight at the Horseshoe, but instead opted for a quiet evening back in Scarborough. I met up with Carvill, Mez, and Dave, and the four of us went off to Blockbuster to rent some films. We decided on Maria Full of Grace, which I have been meaning to watch for a long time. The movie follows a young Columbian girl, who travels to New York city while working as a drug mule. The movie is quite gritty, which is to be expected I suppose. It was depressing, but not nearly as depressing as it could have been. The girl who played Maria did an excellent job. I enjoyed the movie, and would recommend it. I really liked the very last shot in the film.

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
