Dear Dr. W,
When is that damn Salma and Frida movie coming out?
Dear Monobrow Fan,
October 11, 2002 in Los Angeles and New York. First show at 10:15 AM. Not that I'm standing in line already. Not that I'm typing this remotely from a crystal-cyber laptop with pan-geosynchronous alpha-wave uplink to the central DOMINAX computer at Wonderful Laboratories, while my robot doubles make excuses to the senators and entertain the Venusian ambassadors.
Salma Hayek, Mexican Love Goddess, had long been planning to film the bio-pic of Frida Kahlo, Mexican Art Goddess, presumably to show her patriotism and prove she could do more than make advice columnists drool. The picture was completed last year, despite security worries engendered by a series of nude self-portrait murals delivered by pachyderm from the mysterious "Blister Bunderful."
It should be enjoyable, if you like watching depressed painters and socialists have all their dreams shattered. And who doesn't? Much better than that Star Wars crap, I should think.
