Sooo to escape Austin's bat mania last night (news of Central American Vampire Bat migration to Austin) I took in a double feature @ The Alamo South...
1st off I scoped out the Belgium/Flemish flick "BULL HEAD." Not bad at all, just simply "badass." Its a nuevo noir seriously tragic drama set in the world of their countries' illegal human & cattle steroid & harmone black market trade. You should read as little as possible about this before viewing. Take my word its GOOD !
The Alamo served up a great seared Strip Steak rare & rubbed with mustard seed & roasted coffee with browned butter glazed Brussels Sprouts, and Belgian fries w/ Red Pepper Mayo. I washed it all down with a fine Citrus flavored "Blanche de Bruxelles Witbier" & a dark, spicy "Maredsous Dubbel."
Then at a late night private party with choc ice cream cake, hot double choc brownies & an espresso milk shake I was treated to a recently struck beautiful eye popping 35mm Techicolor print of Roger Corman's masterwork "THE MASQUE OF RED DEATH" based on the Poe poem with wonderful camera work, some outstanding art direction & Vincent Price chewing up the scenery. Harry & I were the only ones there that had even seen the film inside a theater projected on the big screen... Ahhhhhhh, virgins all around us for the climatic blood drenched masked ball !
A phantastic evening!!!
