Yesterday I walked downtown along the Hudson River to see Annihilation, which was both good and bad. It was beautiful, and the sound effects were amazing (the best part I thought) but it wasn’t enough for me emotionally. Maybe I should have read the book first?

Walking back I took pictures of seagulls. I don’t trust their innocent “oh we’re just looking out at the water” line-up there.

  1. Oh God, that reviewer really hated it! While I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it, I was drawn in, and was entertained, but so much was missing. It didn’t really have any kind of true emotional center, and it didn’t engage me intellectually either. I guess it was all visual and sound, and I can’t exaggerate how great and inventive the sound was.
