Changeling: A Movie Review by Hightouchmegastore.

Too long, unexpectedly harrowing crime stuff, arch melodramatics. Angelina Jolie wears excellent lipstick and hats. By the way, she is the heroine.

In other news, today my daughter and I saw pages written by Louisa May Alcott and Henry David Thoreau, and by written, I mean "actually written, as in, the pages encapsulated in plastic are the actual pieces of paper written on in ink by these writers." We saw these pages at the Concord Free Public Library, which is a splendid place. We also went to Salem and took in all sorts of diverse historical hoohah, and by hoohah, I mean "awesome buildings and more stuff than witches, which in itself is very interesting." As in, The House of the Seven Gables, which has (a) seven gables, and (b) a rich and storied history. Did you know Salem was a thriving seaport? That there are many first settlement buildings in Essex county? that you can follow a red painted line all over the historic part of Salem, but that it's kind of a mystery who actually maintains the red line?

Finally, and in summation, GPS contraptions are crazy and annoying, but if you can get in the rhythm of the GPS robot, it might actually help you find the movie theater. There is, of course, no question of the GPS robot getting in your rhythm. No: welcome my friends, welcome to the machine. What did you dream? It's all right--it tells you what to dream.


  1. Fun! I was going to suggest that you go to Walden pond, but you already had an over full itinerary. And it sounds lovely.
    I would like to go to Salem some day. I hope the rest of your coastal experience is equally edifying.

  2. Oh, excellent review of the "Changeling." Thanks for seeing movies so I won't have to.
