Movies: Identity

I watched Identity for the second time today (on HBO at 9 PM).  The movie is a well-constructed thriller that starts off more or less like a typical murder mystery — a group of strangers arrive at a motel on a dark, rainy and very stormy night under different circumstances, and then start getting killed off one by one — but by the end the movie changes into something else entirely.  Obviously I wouldn't want to spoil the movie for people who have not seen it, so I'll just say that it's very good.

It is written by Michael Cooney, directed by James Mangold and stars John Cusack, Ray Liotta, Amanda Peet among others.  It also has one of the coolest movie posters I have ever seen.

This evening I was reading some of the Andrew Loomis books I'd downloaded earlier.  If there are two things I need to learn to make my drawings better, they are anatomy and perspective, and hopefully with some practice and these books, it'll happen.  Also started doing some rough layouts for a new comic.
