I really don't watch a lot of movies and I rarely go to an actual movie theater. Today I went to a suburban multiplex of about, oh I don't know, 20 or 30 theaters. That may be an exaggeration but the movie was one elevator and 3 escalators from the car plus some walking. The actual theater was pretty small but the screen was HUGE. It was nearly scary big.

I saw Cake and it was well worth hauling my ass to the theater for. I was really sucked in from the first frame to the last and beyond. Jennifer Anniston dissolved into the main character who lives with chronic physical and emotional pain from a car wreck. The way she held her body was as important to the movie as any of the words or scenery. And, when it was over, I moved carefully out of the theater so as not to exacerbate her pain. It was wild.

I fell into the 5 Guys burger place next to the ticket window and soothed my movie troubled soul with a cheeseburger. D. Licious.

And then made it very slowly home in the beginnings of rush hour traffic.
