Thinking movies

I like thinking movies.

At the top of my list of favorites, you'll see a movie about a giant invisible rabbit, a movie about industrial products salesmen, and a Holocaust movie that makes you laugh. I almost never like chick flicks, romantic comedies, or really very many comedies at all. If a movie makes me think, however, I'll be enthralled. Even movies that don't line up with my world view, like What Dreams May Come or Waking Life- these make me examine my own views, and remind myself why I believe what I do.

What are movies that make you think?

If you haven't seen it already (you might have) here's one that you would LOVE - "My Dinner with Andre." The whole movie is a conversation between two friends. It's amazing.

Some thinking movies I've seen and liked recently... Reign Over Me (wow, gets me right here)... Blood Diamond... that latter one was really powerful, and raised an issue I hadn't thought much about.

Okay, we shall never have the same taste in movies, but that being said, on my to see list: The Boy in Striped Pajamas. You must see "The Ultimate Gift." It is one of the best movies I have ever seen, and I have seen more movies than most people. Can you guess who I am? Hint: Our inlaws can't stand my taste in movies:) I've just about given up on recommending movies to them! lol They always think I'm crazy!!!!
