Dear Diary...

Whether you're a Guevarist sympathizer or not, this movie is a must-see.

Now if I was to keep a diary, it would go something like this:

I overslept today, took a dip in the pool, had lunch with the family (fish was good), bumped into a fellow sweet blogger in Mishref :), attended Kuwait National Band's concert (always a pleasure), shared a falafel sandwich with K's friend, Watched The Motorcycle Diaries (Thanks for the screening, M.), and now I'm home, I can't sleep, so I thought I'd blog..

Too vain, I know
Not as inspirational as Guevara's, huh?

إي ويني آنا ووين غيفارا


Good night, people

I read the book and enjoyed it, but I didn't really like the movie, to be honest. It seemed to be a dulled down version of that portion of his life.

However, I'd watch Gael Garcia Bernal read the phone book if given a chance, so there's always that. :)

Shurouq said...

Hala Nazzal,
I'd lend it to you, but it's not mine :(

The DVD's been out since February..
Do as I would and order it from Amazon.

Eva,
Sooo sorry dear, I thought you knew about it :/

My Friday isn't so bad.. A typical family day :)

N,
Didn't read the book, but the movie struck me as very inspirational

Plus, I really enjoyed the ride.. the sceneries, the music, the people..

(Gael's lips didn't hurt either)

Good night Shurouq, sleep tight, don't let the blogbugs bite
;)

الا نبيذي said...

i watched the movie last summer ... amazing

but try pernal's new one that called -dot the i -
erotic but deep and thrilling with a lot of surprises

retank said...

Some of your posts have scribbly stuff on them, I can`t read them

Shurouq, I got it from Selfridges’ HMV couple of weeks ago, but been stalling as well.. I don’t know why.. I’m a fan of Guevara's and of course Motorcycles.. hehehe.. so I was afraid to be disappointed.. I’ll watch it with ease now.. after you giving it two thumbs up. :P

If you are a fan of foreign films, watch “
CITY OF GOD” Brazilian true story about how the drug war began.. it’ll break your heart… The amount of teenagers dying in Rio in one day more than a month in Iraq..

Shurouq said...

MsBaker,
Good morning
& Blogbugs are gone for good ;)


Illa Nabithi,
I wanted to add "Dot the I" to my Amazon order, but it's not available :/

Retank,
The 'scribbly stuff' must be Arabic text
Welcome to my blog

:) The Don,
I'm afraid the bike will dissappoint you, babe

And I absolutely loved "City of God"

Jandeef said...

Usually I don't watch a foreign/non-mainstream movie until 2 people recommend it for me. You're the 2nd person to recommend this one, so I'll rent it as soon as i'm back home.

AyyA said...

Hmmmm sounds interesting, I think I’ll join the club soon

NYchick said...

"Before Night Falls"? no not yet
I will try to get it soon, thank you

Q said...

Shurouq, I cant wait to see it! its been on my shelf for a month, just finished the starwars trilogy and will want to watch this and a movie called Kung Fu Hustle which is also supposed to be excellent (the same ppl who did Shaolin Soccer, an absolutely amazing movie!)

I really like Gael Garcia Bernal alot! Y Tu Mama Tambien and Amores Perros were both excellent too, thats why I cant wait to see this one!

Shurouq said...

Jandeef & Ayya,
I hope you two will like it

NyChick,
Let me know what you think of it.

Q,
I haven't seen "Y Tu Mama Tambien"
& I know I should

تقولين تحترمين الرأي الآخر
خلي كلامي موجودعلى البلوغ مالج
هذا إذا أنت فعلا تحترمين الرأي الآخر
ليش خايفة وتمسحين الكلام الحقيقي اللي كتبته عنج ؟ فيها شي لما يكون أصلج إيراني ؟ وفيها شي لما تكونين شيعية ؟
عادي Take it easy Shoruq
See you soon

Shurouq said...

Kuwaiti Aseel said...

سؤال يبي إجابة صريحة منج على قد حبج للرأي الآخر وعلى قد صراحتج

Kuwaiti Aseel said...

Shurouq said...
