No. 1 resolution: No resolutions. (Pssst: Film Forum)
Just came home from seeing "Happy-Go-Lucky" at the Saratoga Film Forum. I identified with the main character's generally optimistic view about life and her desire for people to be happy.
I'm happy to have the Film Forum in town. I feel the same way about it that I used to about the Victoria Pool: that it's something of a great secret that more people should take advantage of -- and yet I don't want it to get so crowded that I can't get a seat.
I don't understand why more people, especially young adults, are not regular users of the Film Forum. They show the top-notch films that rarely make it to the mainstream theater; maybe Albany's Spectrum. Admission if four bucks for members, and popcorn and soda are a buck apiece. Beat that.
