I spent most of this past weekend celebrating Halloween… and not surprisingly, much of it revolved around movies.

It was just a great time, followed by one of those late night, ultra-esoteric discussions that jumps around from the sexual subtext of the movies you just watched to American post-modern culture to Sergie Eisenstein to corporate intrigue to G.K.
