A friend who knows photographer Rick Smolan suggested the movie Tracks, it's the tale of Robyn Davidson, who went to Alice Springs with the notion of capturing a couple of wild camels and trekking 1,700 miles to the west coast and the Indian Ocean. Smolan comes into it 'cause he's the photographer National Geographic sends to cover the trek, and their relationship is part of the story (but definitely not the story). Since Charlene's still on the mend, we watched that last night. It's one of those films I would have liked to have seen on the big screen, spectacular shots of the Australian desert.

With a bunch of movies recently I've found myself working out square dance puzzles in my head during the slow bits. This one kept my attention all the way through.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
