I saw Waking Life tonight. What a fabulous film! I was so taken by it. It's about a young man (played by Richard Linklater) who finds himself in one dream after another, talking to others, listening to others, and each scene is animated by different persons and looks very different from the others. It is visually wonderful and the talking I love, it is so like those "deep conversations" we lived for when we were young and still do sometimes.

I had a picture of the film being played on a large-screen television in a house while a party is going on. People could listen to segments and take off in their own conversations from the conversations on screen, pick and choose. It would be like expanding the film into the house and beyond. I love the idea. I suggested it to Elaine.
