    I recently watched "Bridge on the River Kwai" again. It deserved all the awards it won. Every line, every shot of that movie is significant. The insanity of war, the weight of duty. I just love it.

    Darren Adronofsky has proved time and time again that he is a master, his movies always have hidden metaphors, his characters always have inner conflict. I guess these characters show bits and pieces of him. I enjoyed Pi and I think you too will enjoy it
