This movie's supposedly been in limited release since December 25, but I've been pouring over the papers and internet movie listings since and it was not out there. Nowhere near here anyways. Well, it's finally come to a couple of the more artsy theaters somewhat nearby. One in Evanston and one in Chicago. I'm really dying to see it. I saw the first trailer months ago and the animation looks freakin cool. I read Marjane Satrapi's books several years back and thoroughly enjoyed. And last weekend, I happened to be flipping channels late at night and came upon an interview with Marjane Satrapi with Tavis Smiley. Too cool. That's when I realized, for the first time, her name's pronounced Mar-JOHN, but with a soft kind of J like the French say Jean (ZZJAHN). Unless TS was pronouncing wrong over and over again. That would've been weird.
Anyhow, critics all over are gushing about it, so we're gonna have to get to it this weekend.
