The last time I went to see a movie, and it cost $50 for two and a 75-mile drive, I said, “That’s the last time I’m seeing a movie in person.” But you know, I think I might just make an exception!!
It’s too bad few people make movies like this anymore. One hour and five minutes, and it has a wonderful message.
I’m posting this one without commentary, because the movie speaks for itself. Powerful and heart-moving, and well worth your time.
“This is your life, and it’s ending one minute at a time.” That phrase enters my mind quite often. It makes me think about whether what I am doing is useful, or purposeful, or necessary.

But then on the 11th viewing, the light went off *BING* and I Totally Got It. It was brilliant. The first Wes Anderson movie I watched was The Life AquaticContinue reading “happy dance”

Ikiru is 2hr23mins of subtitles. I have to say that first, because in today’s world, that’s a big time investment where you can’t do anything but follow along.
