Saturday Cinema: The Purple Rose of Cairo

In the spirit of a true *first-world problem,* our TV’s DVR is not working.  It has been interesting to discover how much I have learned to count on the ability to record and edit what is on TV.  The hard drive has been wiped out and we are down to “live feed.”  Which is just about unwatchable!  I know–silly stuff.

But we still DO have our Roku box.  And can stream Netflix, HBO, etc.  So time to catch up on a few old favorites.  Watching this, as we speak:


It’s delicious.  Sweet and poignant. And seriously hysterical.  The film-within-a-film gets me every time. 

I’ts the Woody Allen I love the best.  And a great way to spend this night.  Good stuff.
