I've been doing more than just watching movies this week! Which is surprising as I've spent most of the week in bed. I've got a great list of favorites here this week - I hope you think about adding them in to your collections!
This was probably THE most depressing film I've ever seen. The film's title translates into "Love's A Bitch," and this movie goes out of its way to prove just that. It's not for the squeamish or faint of heart, but for those that want a real, gritty view of some of the dramas of Mexico, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND. It helps that I love Gael Garcia Bernal haha.
Bright Shiny Morning:
I know controversy will always surround James Frey, but I have to admit that I LOVE his writing. I find his style absolutely compelling, and I learn to love and care about these realistic characters. This book is broken into small sections of the lives of characters, who come from all walks of life in Los Angeles. Frey also breaks the chapters up with fascinating tips about the history and sociology of the city.
I have been addicted to this game since I got it for the computer! I can't WAIT for it to come out for the iPod Touch (where I can really make some seriously high scores). I've beaten the game as it is, but I still have some gold badges to accomplish!
I have been watching a lot of Intervention lately, as it is an important reminder about self-love and self-care. It has a special place in my heart, as I truly believe I have been crawling out of my own deep hole.
What have you been watching/reading/listening to this week?? Anything that you would recommend? I'm feeling the particularly poignant works lately I think :).
