today I saw four movies, met three directors, two actors, and went to a party. Every film today was wonderful. this is me being embarrassed but very pleased with Ernie Dingo, from Bran Nue Dae, an Australian aboriginal musical, if I have to define it. did I say I am having a great time? Go see Almovodar's Broken Embraces..tomorrow is bran nue dae..

I saw Broken Embraces. Amazingly it came to MK. I love Almodovar, but prefer his earlier work. Great film though.

broken embraces is a belter of a movie! "talk to her" will always be almodovar's best though!

Yes there really is a Roebuck Bay Hotel. Commonly known as "the Roey" its a favourite place for pub bands to play, and as such is a favourite watering hole for locals and backpackers alike.

I'm sure there is a Roey in every small Canadian town. On closer look at the pic, it looks like it's where you and Ernie met:)

By the way, why do you ask about the Roey.

I asked because it is in the movie, Bran Nue Dae, and it looked too real to be made up.

Ernie and the rest of the cast were all in Toronto. Movie did well. I'd like to know more about Jimmy Chi.

my personal Roey is The Horseshoe, in Toronto.
