I watched Agora. I liked it. It's among the kinds of movies that make me feel ashamed for being a human as they keep on letting themselves be poisoned by ideas of superiority. It's almost a confirmation that nothing ever changes.
Just watched "The Road" last night.
It wasn't what I was expecting (I guess I was expecting more action, having never read the book)
but I loved it nonetheless.
It examines the question of what it means to be human, is life worth living just to live, is it sacred even when there is no hope... All while following 2 unnamed characters- a father and 10 or so year old son- as they try to make there way in a dying post-apocalyptic world. The whole point is to head South in hopes that it is warmer, find food, and avoid cannibals. Its good. A suggestion, if you have movie influenced dreams and have children don't watch it before bed!
I want to be alive To all the life that is in me now, to know each moment to the uttermost.
