Just came back from seeing Eat Pray Love.
I am still not sure what I thought, there is more to it than just a love it or hate it. It's deeper than that.
I think the fact that there were five of us in a sedan at the drive-in and it was raining might have tarnished my view of the movie.
It was definitely an experience, very sensory and spiritual I suppose you could say. Makes you want to stop and smell the roses.
I would liken it to "Under the Tuscan Sun". But still in a class all its own.
I understand that the book is pretty much a cult classic and I might just have to spend a week in bed and become acquainted with it.
I can say that I love Julia's wardrobe, adored the soundtrack but felt the cinematography was a little on the dark side. Perhaps this was to create atmosphere, perhaps it was the projectionists fault. I won't know till the DVD comes out.
I think the jury is still out on this one and will remain so for now.
Do enjoy though, don't let me put you off. The fact that I gave it a so-so review means you will absolutely love it. It's always the way.
I was very happy about getting dolled up and heading out on a Friday night, even if it was spent in a car, in the rain.
