Yeah, she did that when I took her too. I just dumped the popcorn onto my lap to keep her quiet.

Okay, now you're totally leaving the official set list.

I could be here all night.

I Still Haven't Found what I'm Looking For was not on the official set list. Nor was Running to Stand Still.

If YLB is getting some, that may be true.

I just watched the new trailer for Prince Caspian. Leave it to Disney to screw God out of a epic, black voice.

WTF - is James Earl Jones dead? Does Morgan Freeman have throat cancer?

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (dir. Julian Schnabel)


At last, I've finally managed to track this one down, and in a grand historic theatre in downtown Tampa on top of it.

This is a very powerful and moving film, yet unsentimental and far from manipulative. You would think a story about a guy paralyzed from head to toe (with the exception of his left eye) would be dry and boring--this was far from it. Much warmer and funnier than you'd expect, and directed with such zeal and creativity that it's as captivating as any summer action blockbuster.

Matthew Almaric and Marie-Josée Croze (both from Spielberg's Munich), as the patient and the therapist who devises a way to communicate with him, are standouts here, as is the legendary Max Von Sydow, playing the paralyzed man's homebound father in a small but very touching role.

The first 10-15 minutes are daring and superlative, giving you a POV through the man's eye as he comes out of his coma and is told what has happened to him. You only see what he sees, and it gives you a great filter to take in the rest of the film with. Eventually you are shown the rest of his world, which includes pre-coma flashbacks, as well as his daydreams and fantasies.

I just can't say enough about this, and will definitely have to take another look at my Top 10 list and Award nominees.

^ I've just returned from seeing it as well.

I'm a wreck.

Hands down the best movie I saw in the last 12 months.

Devastating, beautiful, breathtaking cinematography, incredible soundtrack (a U2 surprise in there for me).

Took my breath away.

Glad you finally saw it. I'd been waiting for you/Lance to see it and share your opinion of it. I posted a review a few weeks ago, I loved it.
