Conclusion of the nonology

An attempt to catch a free screening of V for Vendetta was quashed earlier this week as I found myself at the end of a lineup that circled itself more times than the logic in the Matrix sequels. I'm not sure what organizers thought would happen with a 300-seat capacity theatre and a campus of 30,000 students, about half of whom probably have a greater-than-normal fascination with Natalie Portman.

Anyway, it made me want to see the movie more, and got me primed for another summer season of movies. Then I saw the trailer for this, Drawing Restraint 9, which sort of shook my faith in the whole notion of "movies as entertainment." Surely this must be the artsiest/bizarre film ever made. And I've seen Return to Oz.
