A snow storm, here in the north east, had me in Brooklyn for one more day. After a lazy morning, we decided to hit the cinema again. Staying with the theme of music history, Liza really wanted to see Notorious. She thought the theaters here in Brooklyn would be packed, so we cabbed to Battery Park to the Regal Theater for less of a crowd. The plan worked, and the modest audience was still full of fans. The story of Biggie Smalls' rise to success in the recording industry as a rap artist, was interesting. I liked the structure of the film, and the acting was solid. A good biopic with a sad ending. Someone at the end of our row was sobbing as the credits rolled.
