Ice Haven

I thought I had a bunch of Voice film poll comments that weren't published—but I've only found one in my scrap heap. I brushed it up a little and offer it unto you.

The floating-world heroine of Café Lumière, newly preggers, matches a dream she's been having with a story in a Maurice Sendak book: a goblin has replaced a baby sister with a double made of ice. A changeling theme gives another amazin' Asian, Tropical Malady, its second-half mystery, as Tong, one of the grinning lovers in Part One, disappears—subsumed by or reverting to a tiger spirit. His first-half occupation? Cutting ice.

Speaking of ice—has anyone gone skating in Bryant Park?

(Who am I talking to?)
