Hail (A Cab, For) Caesar!

I saw that new Coen Brothers movie at the Hi-Pointe last night between Saint James The Greater's Fish Fry and Chill Dawg Cove concert/party. Joe (Klueh) asked me what I thought as I was leaving the theatre, and I said: "Sometimes I like to drink Coen-Cola, and sometimes I go for Diet Coen. It was a Diet Coen kind of night." I'm thinking somewhere between (better than) Burn After Reading and (not as good as) Inside Llewyn Davis? But I'm not even sure those two abut one another in my overall Coen rankings. A reasonably fun movie, in any case, some really cool parts, lots of fun fictional movies-within-a-movie, and character-cameos out the wazoo: David Krumholtz, Patrick Fischler, Fisher Stevens, Frances McDormand, Clancy Brown, Wayne Knight, and my favorite, Robert Picardo. Dolph Lundgren was apparently even in there (but I couldn't tell/didn't notice/he mighta been unrecognizable). Some completely unnecessary, unfunny, and only-distracting voiceover-narration performed by Michael Gambon, the absence of which may well have allowed this one to climb higher on my personal Coen Brothers Totem Pole. Worth seeing, though; an interesting companion-piece to the more-disappointing recent Trumbo.

Today: Maybe barbecue, or just making pancakes, at PPHQ // Tolliver Grilled Cheese party // Holy Trinity Trivia Night.
