Other than that, I've been keeping myself busy doing homework - lots of reading and responses - and trying to watch some films that have been nominated for the Oscars. Recently, I've watched No Country for Old Men, Atonement, and Michael Clayton - all of which are nominated for Best Picture.
NCOM - At first when I watched this I was so freaked out - it was so scary and violent! But I also was really able to appreciate the beauty and depth of it at the same time. (does that make any sense?) Then after thinking about it and reading reviews of it, I've started to understand more fully the implications of the film. It really demonstrates the moral confusion of our time, I think, and the fate of everyone. I really want to watch it again because I think I need to hear some of the dialogue again, but just am not sure if I really can handle watching it again just yet. So I liked it but it was pretty brutal. (again... don't know if that makes sense)
Atonement -I absolutely loved it and really want to read the book (which is on my list... :) what a brilliantly written story and I just love Keira Knightley and Joe Wright (the director - he always does those unbelievably long shots that are incredible). So good.
Michael Clayton - maybe I was just too tired, but I didn't really like it a whole lot. I didn't find it quite as thrilling as it proclaimed to be and I don't think I fully understood it all - not legal minded I guess! - but if you got more out of it - please, enlighten me.
These are not meant to be reviews just what I thought about them, as is my blog - just about my life. So don't take it too seriously ;) but do give me your opinions!
