Day 18: Frontier Blues
I went to this on a Friday after work. I really wished I would have gone with my second option I had written down, but I was tired and this event seemed easy.
Easy b/c it was a movie at the Freer-Sackler Theatre which is on the National Mall right by where I work.
The movie was describe as...
“A chicken-farm worker whose best friend is a donkey, a clothing store owner whose wares never fit anyone, a man learning English so he can marry a woman he's never even talked to, and a traditional musician who's not quite traditional enough for the photographer doing a project on him: These are just a few of the oddballs populating Babak Jalali's dry, absurdist comedy. "
it had all the potential to be a great movie...
They also added “dry humor” when they introduced it.
I thought I liked “dry humor”….. but, ohhhh was I wrong.
Apparently dry humor is not entertaining when you don’t get the culture references and you have to read subtitles.
10 minutes into the movie I wanted to fall asleep.
... this is definitely the worst thing I've done this month.
