I used to watch movies via Netflix like breathing air. Three to four movies a week, whenever I had a couple hours to spare.
It's been a while since I've had the time to spare...
But now it's time to catch up!
I started this evening with DOUBT (2008)--
Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic!
I felt as if I was watching a parable written by Hawthorne...of course it turns into something he probably wouldn't have written.
Or maybe he would've. He was rather progressive, and seemed to want to expose certain cultural things (mainly the falsehood of the Salem Witch Trials)--
I like a good "thinking" movie. And I've never wanted to smash Meryl Streep in the face so much in my life!
What an amazing actress she is--there are no words to really express it. All the awards, all the accolades are well-deserved.
"You just don't like him! You don't like it that he uses a ballpoint pen. You don't like it that he takes 3 lumps of sugar in his tea. You don't like it that he likes Frosty the Snowman and you are letting that convince you? Of something that's terrible... Just terrible..." Sister James
But can one be wrong if they are strong in their convictions--even if their convictions are wrong?
I feel like a nerdy Carrie Bradshaw asking the question, but I will let it fester here (and probably use it in a story sometime in the near future).
