I really despise feeling like I have wasted a day that could have been spent doing something constructive. Planting the seeds, as they say. Instead, I shaped my whole day around travelling to my film class only to be there for approximately 3.6502418 seconds, considering the teacher simply had nothing prepared and wasn't in any mood to change that.
By the time I returned home and finished watching Duplicity, I was quite over Monday. I was really disappointed with this film. It had all the bells and whistles of quick humour and breath taking settings across Europe but this was one over ambitious film designed to exploit every minute that it convinced me to sit through. First of all, having two main characters is risky business right from the start. Couple this with bouncing back and forth between different spaces of time and place, exploring both their stories, and that of the antagonist, parrallel action and the 'ticking clock' scenario, it got to a point where my mind was struggling to keep up with all this information that I had actually forgotten what the imperative mission was that the couple were embarking on. It was purely overkill.
I had to have a lie down.
