Movie Suggestion

Amy and I just finished watching "Match Point" (which, despite the title and the first few minutes of the movie, actually has very little to do about Tennis).

I had no idea what the story was or what I was getting in to... but as the credits rolled, I had a chuckle and made the comment that that was one of the best movies I've seen in some time.

Yes, the story was enticing, but it was the subtleties that made this a good film. I wish to say no more about the plot so as not to spoil it for the rest of you - but do yourself a favor and pick it up at the movie store...

...and then let me know what you think.

Cathy and I thought this was a really interesting movie to watch in that you begin to feel the angst of the characters, forgetting it's only a movie. I've always been a fan of Woody Allen, but I thought this was one of his best and most 'conventional.'

We had no idea about the plot either, when we picked it up- glad we didn't know too much about it.

Trev, my mother just told me about a film you may be interested in. It's not out yet but you can see trailers online. It's called "Zen Noir". It was written by this guy who went on a Zen retreat and had a story idea about what would happen if someone dropped dead at a Zen retreat and a B-movie detective came to visit. The detective is a "just the facts" guy and he's trying to deal with these Zen monks.

I loved this movie too Trev. At first my wife (girlfriend at the time) had to convince me to go, but it was really probably one of the best movies I've seen on the big screen in a while (other than little indies.)

Trev and Zach,

Thanks. I'll check it out this weekend.
