Incidentally, I saw “Precious” the night before last, and man, was I glad I’d forgotten Mariah Carey was in it. What a wonderful experience to have her name come up in the credits and suddenly realize what I’d just seen. That was a really deep performance.

The movie as a whole was much better than I’d expected, going on the reviews. Really a pretty bold thing to make; in comparison to the size of the undertaking, the mistakes are rather trivial.

There might have been two or three Vietnamese folks in the seats at Cinematheque; everybody else was an expat. Oh well.

Mariah Carey wasn’t in the book, but that was some book. Dadgum depressing.
