At Home He's a Tourist

He fills his head with culture/ He gives himself an ulcer.

Movie Notes

To escape the clay oven that is Palo Duro Canyon on a summer afternoon, Pablo and I drove into Amarillo on Saturday to see The Incredible Hulk in air-conditioned comfort. It makes me sad to see Ang Lee following Anthony Hopkins down the meretricious path from art-house to megaplex. I've followed his career ever since seeing the charming Eat Drink Man Woman. Though an action flick, at least Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon had humor, exotic locales, and intricate choreography; Hulk is as noisy and mindless as its title character. Avoid.
