The Best Movie You Haven't Seen
Big thanks to Nicole (aka Beatlesgirl) for the recommendation regarding one of the best movies I've seen in a long, long time. This weekend I was lucky enough to watch The Fall (thanks, Netflix) and I triple loved it. Wow, what a beautiful, lovely film. As Nicole said, it's The Princess Bride for our generation. Nothing I can say is going to give it justice, but it has all the elements to make a perfect film - action, a good story, great cinematography, a cast you love to watch, a love story, and the "I-can't-wait-to-see-what-happens-next" factor (yes, I realize that's not a technical explanation, but I'm not really a professional film critic, so deal with it). All I can say is see it if you get a chance.
