seen on film
Yesterday, I watched The Hot Rock on AMC. Not a classic movie by any means. Basically, it's Robert Redford in a spectacular display of wooden acting that would make Keanu Reeves look like Oscar material.
Yet I watch it every time it's on.
See, part of the movie was filmed right in my hometown of East Meadow. You see the jail and a little strip mall and the movie theater, which at the time was a Jerry Lewis Cinema and is now an office building tucked into the corner of another strip mall.
I was ten when the movie came out (1972), and my mother took us to see it just for the local cultural aspect. There's something very odd about sitting in a movie theater, watching a movie in which the movie theater you are watching the movie in appears on the screen.
No point to this really, just wanted to mention that.
