Hal Hartley's The Book of Life. In some ways (due to the cast) this feels like a failed attempt to recapture his magnificent Henry Fool, and in others it seems like a dumbed down version of Surviving Desire. Let that not dissuade you, this is a Hal Hartley after all. PJ Harvey is wonderfully languid as she cuts a swathe through millenial New York.

Rugby: Australia v Ireland at Lansdowne Road. It started at roughly 1:30am in Australia. A pretty crappy match, with O'Driscoll out injured and the Irish number 10 somehow having an off day. Latham played well and the (starting) front row didn't cave in.
