My husband and I watched Fellini's "8 1/2" last night. What an incredible movie! Marcello Mastroianni is perfect as "Guido" ( I am dying to see how Daniel Day Lewis brings his "Guido" to life in "9")! Although I know some of "8 1/2" and have seen bits and pieces of it over the years, last night was the first time I saw the entire movie. At the beginning of my 3 week vacation, I posted on my blog that I wanted to see 3 movies. Those movies are "9", "A Single Man", and "Broken Embraces". Tomorrow begins week 3 of my break, so I need to stop talking about doing it and head to a theater first chance I get! I am running out of time! And on the subject of movies, my husband has challenged me to put together a list of 52 movies to watch this year. I know whatever I come up with, many of those film choices will include classics and foreign, which is my favorite genre. I hope the next movie the 2 of us sit and watch at home is Fellini's "La Dolce Vita". More on that later on...

Lee, I have never really been into musicals either, but I am a BIG fan of Daniel Day Lewis and I like Penelope Cruz's work as well. Having seen "8 1/2" and knowing the story has made me want to see
"9". I will let you know if I enjoyed it after I see it this week.
