Da, da, da-da-da...

Caught Iron Man in Rome (English with Italian subtitles). The first blockbuster of the summer delivers. Yay! And Robert Downey, Jr., proves again that he is a genius.

Also saw Before the Devil Knows You're Dead (English with Greek subtitles) at a lovely outdoor rooftop theater in Athens. Before... isn't as good as Lumet's best movies--I think the cut could be ten or so minutes shorter. But it is worth a watch for the performances (P. S. Hoffman!) and... well, Lumet, who on his worst day is still one of the best directors working.

Here's a grainy iPhone photo of that rooftop theater...

See if you can swing by Germany and see what their issue is with H&C. Sounds like a conspiracy to me.

Personally, I think the German dub of Hide and Creep is hilarious.
