Pera Museum and Hollywood syncronicity

That Temiz concert was last weekend. This weekend I decided to go the Pera Museum, way down along Istiklal Caddesi, close to the Swedish consulate. Unfortunately I couldn’t give it the time it deserved. I will have to get back, at least to the painting exhibition on the evolution of the role of women in Turkish society.

What interested me most this time, though, was the temporary exhibition of French Photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson. Fantastic frozen moments placed on walls. For my poor soul, moulded by engineering, no paintings can be as striking as photography.

One photo depicted a thin American youngster. Truman Capote it said. I recognized the name, but failed to remember why. I have to check him Wikipedia I thought. Then I rushed out of there to catch a movie, or rather to catch my company for the movie. At the theatre the rushing part seemed somewhat superfluous since the commercials before the actual movie was one of these more-than-twenty-minutes blocks of commercials that Erkan wrote about only a tiny bit below this post.

If this was source of irritation it was all countered by a long trailer for a movie of which I hadn’t heard of. Capote it’s called and deals with the success and morals of Truman Capote. The speed of that answer was so great that I will immediately start to work on my Big Hollywood Conspiracy Theory. And where did I put that foil-hat now?

The movie we watched was Woody Allen’s Match Point. It was really great.
