I quite enjoyed this movie. Paul Dano was amazing in it. The themes of money and greed were very timely for me as I'm a struggling student doing a couple internships for no pay and trying to find a job in a lousy job market. It just reminded me that I can't let myself be consumed by the thoughts of money. It doesn't lead to good things. Anyway, I thought it was a very well done film and I'd recommend it.
I didn't finish a book this week except for a short biography of Ghandi that I read. It was quite interesting, I really didn't know anything about him before reading it. I think biographies can be quite interesting. I often find non-fiction quite hard to read for some reason, but its a goal of mine to read more of it.
As for music, this week I've been listening to Patrick Watson. I saw them back in May I think it was. He put on an amazing concert and has recently released a new album - Wooden Arms.
They were also just nominated for a Polaris Music Prize - an award given to the best Canadian album, based on artistic merit.
