There is something awkward about the movie, the script, and the direction--but it's as if the film's awkwardness reflects my own feelings of ineptness in knowing how to make a difference. I don't blog about the war. Or rather: I don't blog against the war, though I am against it. I have become numb to the headlines of loss, but today, again I was moved. The film is a bleak look at how neither individuals nor the collective can stop the continued fighting in a war that should never have been started--but still I must believe it is worth it to pay attention, and to speak up (even if it is this small way). The movie helped me connect again -- maybe it will do that for you.
