Day 1 in New York
T he last film I watched aboard the plane before I landed at JFK was 25th Hour , essentially Spike Lee's paean to New York City. And it was a nice lead-in to returning to NYC - it is very good to be back in the city. Had a meal at Goodburger (the natural instinct to find top-notch food for carnivores in whatever city I land in still remains intact, I'm glad to say), and then watched the Columbia University Film Festival , since my friend Soman's film was being screened. Very impressive, polished stuff from all the films. Ah, the glories of a rest day. Now that my body is adequately adjusted to New York time, it's on to proper work.
