I watched "Sonny" last night. A very dark and gritty movie about a mother who prostitues girls and her son in New Orleans, he trying to break away from that. Intense and sad as that happens not only in America, but all over the world.

Watching this on Netflix, haven't seen the ending yet - was getting too upset at the Christians destroying priceless scrolls at the library
based on historical fact
A historical drama set in Roman Egypt, concerning a slave who turns to the rising tide of Christianity in the hopes of pursuing freedom while also falling in love with his master, the famous female philosophy professor and atheist Hypatia of Alexandria.
Rachel Weisz . Hypatia
Max Minghella . Davus
Oscar Isaac Oscar Isaac
Orestes Ashraf Barhom
Ammonius Michael Lonsdale
Rupert Evans Synesius
Alexandria, 391: Hypatia teaches astronomy, mathematics, and philosophy. Her student Orestes is in love with her as is Davus, her personal slave.
As the city's Christians, led by Ammonius and Cyril, gain political power, the great institutions of learning and governance may not survive.
Jump ahead 20 years: Orestes, the city's prefect, has an uneasy peace with Christians, led by Cyril.
The Christians enforce public morality; first they see the Jews as their obstacle, then women.
Hypatia has no interest in faith; she's concerned about the movement of celestial bodies and the brotherhood of all.
What place is there for her?

Saw Transformers 3 two days ago. I STILL feel unclean(but at least I didn't pay for the ticket.nope, still regretting it anyways.)
Watched A Hard Day's Night and 3/4 of Imagine: John Lennon last night. Way better use of 2.5 hours in my opinion, and I'm not even a hardcore Beatlemaniac.
We have the documentary Capitalism A Love Story on DVD.
I've been meaning to watch it but I'm afraid it's going to really piss me off.
Anyone here seen it?

Just saw the last Harry Potter movie, loved it.
But i cried at certain parts, never cried at a movie before.
Might be because i'm part of the Potter generation.
Saw the first movie at 9, saw the last at 19.
Sad that it's over, glad it was so good.

"Touch of Evil" ,Orson Welles 1958
Opressive Drama around an older cop(195 Orson Welles in b/w.
Typical OW, like Third Man, Rosebud. A bit of 60th touch like James Dean films, though Orson Welles was a bit older.
Always worth watching!

Yesterday I saw 'Endgame' 2009 . The last efforts to end the civil-war in South-Africa by a conference initiated by an english business-men in GB-ground with ANC and Boer-Delegates. The difficulties of Secret-Service-Interventions and ANC-Activities, endet with the speech of Leclerc, that they may not spoil this chance and the disimprisonment of Nelson Mandela after 23 years. An example,that in our world only the business-necessarities bring a change, though the human rights injuries are well-known before.
Sometimes pathetic,but a good and informing film.
'Harry Potter', quite well.
'Larry Crown', quite well, american way of coping the oeconomy-crisis personally.
