Lessons Learned from "Let the Right One In"


* Sweden in the mid-80's seemed like a pretty bleak place to live.

* Middle aged Swedes seem to like their booze. It could be the weather, I think it's the furniture - no wonder I don't shop IKEA.

* It's not a good idea to stalk people in a public park and then hang them and drain their blood, someone is bound to come along and discover what you've been up to - if not that, a prissy dog might find you.

* I knew that vampires were good at puzzles, I also knew that they can't come into your home unless they are invited in; I had no idea that house cats can go all nutso and attack them!

* It's not a good idea to open the drapes at the request of that patient who was admitted earlier to your hospital claiming that she's a vampire.

* Prepubescent love is tough enough, prepubescent love between a boy and a vampire girl seems like a particularly tough road to hoe.

* Vampires sometimes sleep in bathtubs.

* Don't fuck with a vampire girl's friend...especially at a public swimming pool!

* Let The Right One In, is now my favorite movie of the year.

Especially if it turns out that the "girl" once was born as a boy,

This movie will be more horrific after a week in your head.
