Surviving the Snow: Dog Poetry + Life
NYC is thawing out. As we played indoors with the puppy, we recited poems from I Could Chew on This: And Other Poems by Dogs. Do yourself a favor and order a copy. Hilarious. We also watched a brilliantly acted film, Life. It's a poetic look at the true-story behind a 1955 LIFE magazine photo vignette by American photographer, Dennis Stock. Stock profiles the about-to-be-famous, James Dean, ahead of the release of East of Eden. Robert Pattinson, who plays Stock, is the real deal. We were blown away by his acting chops. So is Dane DeHaan who plays Dean spectacularly. We watched the film in two sittings. The pace is slow at times, but the film is worth it and artfully shot. We think we will be re-watching Rebel Without A Cause this weekend.
