This Makes Me Very Happy Indeed

If you know me well, you know of my sad little crush on Elia Suleiman. This crush began 8 years ago, when I first viewed his film, Chronicle of a Disappearance. I just learned that the movie is now available on DVD. I’m glad I’m at home, because I screamed when I found out.

I love this movie. It’s a poem, really, and everything film should be. I was disappointed with Divine Intervention, which got tons of press and Cannes awards: Chronicle is subtler, funnier, and much more moving. Check it out if you haven’t already.
