Movie Dog
My oh my Movie Dog has been a long time away from the slivery screen (ouch! remind me not to project on splintered wood again!) But what with the DemoSuckFest all over TV tonight, it seems a perfect time to vacuum the shelves at BlockBuster. And what is the first gem in this crown of thorns? The Station Agent.
Not perfect but what a wonderful film. The plot in a nutshell:

When his only friend and co-worker dies, a young man born with dwarfism moves to an abandoned train depot in rural New Jersey. Though he tried to maintain a life of solitude, he is soon entangled with an artist who is struggling with a personal tragedy and an overly-friendly Cuban hot dog vendor.

Absolutely fantastic performances from Patricia Clarkson and
Peter Dinklage as the artist and the dwarf. It is low-key but extremely engaging. If you have, or want, a quiet movie for a quiet evening, rent it. Thank me later.
