I can feel the velvet on the seats, the cushy carpet under foot and faintly smell popcorn.
:D I chose this picture on my Twitter page background a while ago. :) I love it too.

I feel this woman is thinking nothing of the film, she is "elsewhere. "Divided by scarlet tapestries, two dramas unfold...."
Well, well. That was the one I visualised before I clicked the link.

I love this one, as well.
Edward Hopper was a genius. I love when fine art is inspired by film and vice versa.
What does it saw to you, Sir?
She's seen the movie dozens of times. Her feet are tired & life hasn't turned out like Hollywood.
This painting tells a story .. many stories.
I know it's cliche, but Nighthawks is my favorite painting by Hopper.
Just read @ebertchicago's "Talking Dirty @ Movies" in NSFC bk Flesh & Blood; its cover mods this.
Did the movie overcome her with melancholy? Is it too close to home?
