seems there has been several latino directors making worthy movies of late.
children of men was, indeed, a special movie.
so was babel, every bit worthy of an oscar nod for best movie.
and pan's labyrinth...this just may have been the best of the bunch. as fine looking as anything since lord of the rings, maybe better looking. its a fairy tale for adults (sort of).
its a shame more movies don't challenge the viewer for expecting a well told story. i realize that well told stories don't make gobs of money anymore, but i refuse to give up on them. wait long enough, you will be entertained. recent movies that have wowed me were...little miss sunshine, sideways (paul giamatti is this countries most under-rated actor), the departed...
don't get me wrong, a little mindless entertainment is good too. i will watch just about any spooker put on film. i've seen a bunch of them recently too. most of them are crap. but, do i turn the channel? hell no.
I want to tell her that I love her a lot, but I got to get a belly full of wine.
