Read my first Dashiell Hammet novel this weekend. "The Maltese Falcon". It was a fun read. There were times when sentences were so packed with era-specific slang I couldn't really follow, but for the most part, I kept up.
The Boyfriend and I just finished watching Ang Lee's Lust, Caution, which is intense and pretty amazing. I think I recommend it. I'm not sure, though.
After both the book and the film, I want to be wearing red lipstick and smoking like a chimney.
