It’s been a few hours that Silver Linings Playbook (2012) caught me by surprise. I’m okay now. What I like doing most is not do anything and watch tv while longing for the outdoors. A TV Guide is not required much like navigation is a nuisance common with websites. I get pulled in and guided by the story or I do something else.

I had no clue what I was watching and did’t recognise the actors until it dawned on me that the bad woman was the girl from the Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence, who I have a crush on the minute I get to see her.

I like it or I don’t. With actors, Mrs. Hammerstein offered a good enough qualification, which can be applied to perhaps any design discipline:


You know your are watching an actress or actor and are by no means disturbed by knowing who they are.


Bradley Cooper is such an actor and so is Jennifer Lawrence and some sharp work from a talented cast give balance to the fabric and insights you gain from watching Silver Linings.

Nor could Robert De Niro ruin it for me, even though I knew it’s Robert De Niro. Au contraire.

Now I want to live in a country where I can go running wearing a garbage bag.
