I can understand the desire to avoid the Harry Potter films. A friend of mine, a few years ago, said that she admired J.K. Rowling for refusing to turn the books into movies. Sure enough, a couple of months later, there they are.

I actually did not start reading the books until after I had seen the first movie, so I was a latecomer. The first movie was all right-- to be expected from Chris Columbus. The second one was not as good, although some of the performances (Kenneth Branagh, Shirley Henderson and Alan Rickman) made it worth watching.

The day after I saw Chamber of Secrets, I read a review of it, which is when I got some exciting news: Alfonso Cuaron, who directed the best new foreign-language film I had seen in years (Y Tu Mama Tambien) was going to direct Prisoner of Azkaban. It ended up being 50 times better than either of the first two-- just goes to show what happens when you get a real director making a real film, and not just a paint-by-numbers adaptation of the original novel. Perhaps that's what makes the dance performance of At Swim, Two Boys so interesting, seeing the preview on the company's web site: It looks like some thought and interpretation has gone into it.

If only, say, Tim Burton had directed the first two Harry Potter movies.

Anyway, back to the dance performance, are there any performances slated for the fall? Or is that it? I'm really intrigued by the pictures I've seen.
