I wasn't huge on Super Size Me because it seemed a tad pointless. I mean who doesn't know fast food is bad for you? Why make a movie exposing something that's already common knowledge? Then again, maybe it just doesn't hit me because I seldom eat fast food (that isn't Lion's Choice).

I saw a Japanese film called "Last Life in the Universe" and I thought it was quite well done. It was very minimal. I love that, for not much to be going on so you can see how much goes on when not that much goes on...if that makes sense. Basically it's very subtextual and thin. It's also beautifully shot. I highly recommend it.

There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!
