So, just a side note before I say what I actually wanted to post about: I am really feeling this new look to Blogger (obviously, if you don't have a Blogger blog then you've got no clue what I'm talking about, but just go with it, k?).
Anyway, I wanted to write about a film that (don't laugh) I actually consider to be a pretty fantastic piece of modern art. I bought my mom the DVD of Love Actually
for Mother's Day and we watched it this evening when I came home from class. I had seen it before, but I had forgotten how good the film actually made me feel. In particular, the beginning and the end. If you've seen the film then you know I'm talking about the scenes from Heathrow Airport where they show real people greeting each other. At the beginning of the film there's this bit with Hugh Grant talking about watching people greet each other at the Arrivals gate at Heathrow and how he's got this "sneaky feeling that love actually is all around us."
The first time I saw the film I almost started crying right then. It's touching. And the film proceeds, managing to snake together 10 different storylines starring some of Great Britain's most famous and talented actors, like Hugh Grant, Colin Firth, Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Liam Neeson and Rowan Atkinson (not to mention, of of America's finest talents, Laura Linney). With a cast like that, you'd think that they'd all be dying for the spotlight. But the movie is seamless. And its gorgeous. If you haven't seen it, go rent it. It's not just about romantic love, its about love of all kinds, and I haven't met a single person who hasn't been in love with the film itself.
Dude, how cool is it that Blogger now gives you comments? The only catch is that you have to be a registered Blogger user to do it. If that's not gonna work out, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll go back to the old ones.
