Janeen and I went down to the Civic Media Center to watch New Low, which had been filmed in and around Gainesville (the old CMC, Video Rodeo, Northeast Park, Common Grounds’ Porch, etc).
New Low was an amusing, occasionally laugh-out-loud-funny, look at a drifting college kid and his romantic failings. Adam Bowers, the writer-director-star, reminded me of younger-sort-of-hipper Woody Allen (which is probably what he was going for).
There was nothing groundbreaking about New Low, but it was enjoyable and any movie that has the good enough sense to include Radon in its trailer and involve The Civic Media Center as a key part of the plot gets 8 thumbs up from me!
After the movie, we went home and I watched the Celtics beat the Spurs with Rajon Rondo dishing out an amazing 22 assists. This was a beautifully played basketball game that I can only hope is a preview of the 2011 NBA Finals.
