July 30th, 2019.
Among other things, this was the second premiere in two days AND the second in a row to feature an orange carpet… my wristband promised untold potential for misery, and forecasts of rain (both heavy and frequent) solidified the ominous nature of the event. And yet… i stayed. Obviously…. for Quentin’s 9th…. and also my 4th of Quentin’s 9.
Here’s how it went down:
So… that was that. Given the intermittent rain, the large crowds, the profusion of security / attendants / guests and gawkers on the carpet, and the limited opportunities… I think it was worth it, overall. And just for once it’s a movie I’m actually looking forward to watching - not just as part of my ‘close the circle’ commitment to eventually watch every movie I’ve been to the premiere of, that’s located in my Archive of Premieres here.
Until next time!
