    SO excited to see Shame! My most-anticipated film for the remainder of 2011.

    Also, is it wrong that when I saw “Eames: The Architect” that I thought “Eames is a FORGER!!” instead? 😡 (Huge Inception fan here)

      Sheaam is remarkable. You’ll love it!

      No, you’re thoughts on Eames are totally justifiable.
