Worth the time

Best movies I have seen recently?

Thankyou For Smoking
. There need to be more movies like this one.

Everything is Illuminated. Probably a movie that only I would like. Holocaust themes, second language English, writing, history, teen pop culture and eastern Europe. Oh yeah, and a seeing eye “bitch” named Sammy Davis Jr. Jr.

Judgement at Nuremberg
. Goes into the category of movie that should be shown in high school to everyone as part of the curriculum because of moral/ethical and historical relevance.

    I loved Everything is Illuminated, you’ve got to read Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Jonathan Foer wrote them both. The book is so strangely sweet and the details are oddly vivid and funny and sad and I wish I could articulate what a wonderful book it is better, but I loved it.

    I recently tried to read it! I got lost in all the flashbacks and put it down because I didn’t ever know where I was when I picked it up, and then I stopped caring because it was all so strange. So I watched the movie, and that helped. It was more linear and logical, and the pain of the little boy’s loss of his father really, really stood out powerfully. And mom was amazing too. Rarely is a movie better than the book, but I got lost in the art of the writing in the book. It was a little too MC Escher for me.
