New Orleans is still everywhere

Cat and I just saw the new Denzel Washington flick, Deja Vu. I didn't know going in that the movie is set in New Orleans. The movie was in pre-production in New Orleans before Katrina and nearly didn't happen in the aftermath.

Like any New Orleans film, this one has problems, between bayous n' gators minutes from downtown and the lack of drunks and costumes on Mardi Gras (though they got the amount of trash right).

I'm glad that we saw this one so close to returning from New Orleans, and not in a week or three or whatever- it was easier being reminded of the city with fresh memories.
