    I saw "Clouds of Sils Maria" last weekend

    and it was brilliant. Kristen Stewart was amazing in it and I have finally forgiven her for the Twilight saga.

    The Perks Of Being A Wallflower

    I just finished watching this and can I just say what a great film this was. It had me in tears at the end and i think this was because it made me reflect on my own life. It was an amazing film with an awesome story line. If you haven't seen this yet then I don't know what you...

    Has anyone seen the film Incendies?

    It's amazing but at the same time heartbreaking, about siblings searching for their brother who was taken from their mother during the Middle eastern conflict & Lebanon civil war. I was emotionally drained afterwards but it's so unforgettable and special.

    I love Trainspotting!

    it makes me think about how even the worst person on earth deserves a second chance, and also it makes me think about how the worst and ****** up situations, experiences and problems, can make you evolve as a person and can make you evolve your spirit and soul :)

    For ME-such a movie was "Forrest Gump,

    " starring Tom Hanks, Sally Field, and Gary Sinese. I saw this movie on my 30'th birthday-Thursday, March 16'th, 1995. I was truly inspired by the story of the title character; and how he-despite daunting physical and mental challenges-accomplishes & achieves great things...

    the richness of thought to be found in this Lars von Trier film. I'm thinking specifically about the guy in it who's in need of an illustration, he's pondering the need of this, for his vocation in the town is to teach, he's like a preacher after the death of god. And then a dog...

    I'm watching it now. I've seen it at least fifty times (no exaggeration) and it seems to hit a bit closer to home each time I watch it. It's one of those films that I consider to be a friend. I think we all feel that way about at least one or two. You can almost put yourself...
