Just wondering if anyone saw "dancer in the dark" with Bjork in it. I did and I loved it! Anyone want to share their opinions on this film? I bawled my eyes out at the end.

I saw Dancer. it was beautiful, and Bjork's character frustrated me to no end (she played Selma so well!). But I liked "Requiem for a Dream" better.

Kill your TV! And while you're at it, your mobile phone, too.

I looooooved that movie. It was very movie, I was crying so hard at the end too. I also liked it because it made me restart my thinking about how anti-death penalty I am. Oy, that made no sense . . . way too late.

The blurb in my local art theater's flyer gave me no idea just how sad it was going to be. I had no kleenex on me and ended up a soggy mess, finally borrowing my date's handkerchief. And let me tell you, I am not one of those folks who just looks pale and tragic when she cries. We're talking red blotchy face, swollen eyes, runny nose--the works. I'm glad I didn't have a mirror.

So all in all--it was great!

And I've got no illusions about you.
Guess what? I never did.

This is a beautiful film. I've only seen it a handful of times because every time I watch it, it has the tendency to make me a bit morose for the rest of the day. It is a movie I like to share with people, though, because it is so powerful. I've watched it with two separate friends and they were both in awe.

Jeff is my favorite character.
