"Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in."

''It was one of those days when it's a minute away from snowing and there's this electricity in the air, you can almost hear it. And this bag was, like, dancing with me. Like a little kid begging me to play with it. For fifteen minutes. And that's the day I knew there was this entire life behind things, and... this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afrai... read more

I can't believe this film has so many tags but not one single review.

I went for a very long time having claimed to have seen this film, when in fact I had only sat and watched bits and pieces of it on seperate occasions. When I finally sat and watched it from start to finish, I was just amazed. I'm a big Kevin Spacey fan anyway, but this film doesn't just rely on the big man. He i... read more

"Personally, I think that this is a movie that tries to remind us that we have the ability to keep life in perspective, but usually don't. I think that what AB tries to say with it's message, especially at the end is much bigger than most of us realize. This is a film that I hope I can remember to watch every 4 or 5 yrs of my life, just as a reminder to "something" that I genuinely believe we all already know, but hardly ever allow it's awareness to surface during the course of our lives. Or may"

" Notes: I remember it very well when I first saw this movie. Indeed, I saw it in the movie theater when it was released and, back then, I was really blown away by the whole thing. I thought it was a great flick and it is not very often that I came across such a movie which really deserved all the praised it received. Basically, there is some very good acting, very good direction and the story is completely captivating. What else do you need ? Concerning Sam Mendes, he delivered here one of the"
