#Hair opened in New York 51 years ago. I finally saw it tonight with Daniel Newman. The guy next to us sang along with every song. Let the sunshine in. (A side note: My sister Betty Buckley dubbed the Walking In Space solo in the 1979 film of Hair.)
I think this may be the biggest grocery store in the world. I cannot see the end of it.
A gloriously beautiful day in Atlanta, hanging with Daniel Newman and his dogs Bear and Rocco.
It’s Stanley Kubrick’s birthday, whose work continues to inspire me and make me dig deeper. “A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.” —Stanley Kubrick
Today is Carl Jung’s birthday. In 1989, a year after the death of my first significant other and during the terminal illness of my father, I discovered the philosophy of Jung. His ideas about individuation, personal myth, and the collective unconscious changed my life. I began to find meaning in the face of tragedy. I was in Jungian analysis for 15 years, and I would be still except that my analyst passed away in 2016. We are meaning-seeking creatures and it is up to each of us to embark upon that journey. “I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.” —C.G. Jung
We’re still shooting. I’m so tired. #SweetMagnolias “Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.” —Anne Lamott
One of those days where I’d like to take a nap but miles to go before I sleep. Just back from lunch. 📷: @anneliesecjudge #SweetMagnolias

Monday morning with my esteemed DP Brian Johnson, who watches my back and also made me dinner last night. #SweetMagnolias
“Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.” —Ingmar Bergman. His birthday.
Midnight. Not a sound from the pavement.
Night shoot. #SweetMagnolias
Jim Nickas has weird glasses. They weird me out when I’m talking to him.
Still shooting at 11pm, with Jim Nickas and Deb Walters. #SweetMagnolias
Okay, I know I’m late to this party but I just finished the first season of #KillingEve and it’s great. Very violent, very funny, very suspenseful. Just in time for season 2.

Psycho, the Musical. Name a song.
Saturday afternoon. We’re all in the same mood.
Monty just had a bath. He feels contempt for me right now. This too shall pass.
Catching up this morning with my friend Gordon Antell at breakfast.
“At that moment, beauty itself struck me as a kind of painful melancholy.” —Arthur Golden
My friend Katie Rayle invited me to see the first episode of #FosseVerdon tonight at LACMA and it was so excellent. When I was 16 years old, during my sister’s run in Pippin, I went with her and my brother-in-law to a 4th of July party at Bob Fosse’s house in the Hamptons. It is an indelible memory in my mind—my first introduction to the world of Broadway dancers (which then became such a huge part of my life just a few years after that.) There is something so thrilling about watching great dancers dance.
I stole a bunch of books from my mother’s house when I was in Texas. My loot arrived today by UPS. It felt like Christmas.
More production planning over drinks. #PLLThePerfectionists
And that’s a season wrap on Noah Gray-Cabey! #PLLThePerfectionists
And that’s a season wrap on Haley Erin! It’s been a pleasure working with you, Haley, and I’m sure that Kelly Rutherford feels the same. Though I probably shouldn’t speak for her. #PLLThePerfectionists
The Rosenthal-King family on the #PLLThePerfectionists set this morning.
“Portland was a dream both in the literal sense and the metaphorical sense, both tangible and not - a fleeting affair you want to hold on to but can't, so you try memorizing her every detail only to fail to do so in the consumption, in the savoring, in the absorbing of yourself into her. When she's gone, she comes to you in snippets, replaying in your mind like a fragmented picture show.” —Jackie Haze
A wonderful dinner tonight with the Rosenthal-King family. Marlene is my creative inspiration; and Shari and the boys are my dear friends. It was a delightful evening.
“Were it possible for us to see further than our knowledge reaches, and yet a little way beyond the outworks of our divinings, perhaps we would endure our sadnesses with greater confidence than our joys. For they are the moments when something new has entered into us, something unknown; our feelings grow mute in shy perplexity, everything in us withdraws, a stillness comes, and the new, which no one knows, stands in the midst of it and is silent.” —Rainer Maria Rilke
Getting towards the end of this joyride with Sofia Carson! Three more days after today. #PLLThePerfectionists
RIP Mary Oliver. She may now be gone, but she will always continue to speak to my soul.
Brady had always thought Derek was a sad sack. When Brady said as much, Derek threw a punch at him. But it missed, of course. Brady wasn’t even phased. He just stared. #CrewShortStories #PLLThePerfectionists #TheStoryOfDerek #AnExistentialLifeInFilm
