OK, I’ll admit it. I cried.

The Lives of Others is quite possibly the best movie I’ve seen in 5 years. Go and rent it now.

Why do American films have to suck so much? What is wrong here? Is it the demand for franchises and sequels?


One thing’s for sure — the Germans can.

    I do not recall having seen you this passionate about a movie.  It has been added to my Netflix queue.Paris, Je T\’aime has some good moments if you have not seen it.

    JD, it\’s seriously good (93% on Rotten Tomatoes BTW). It was kinda personal on a few levels, too. 1) I\’m a big civil libertarian so drawing links between stuff like this and the "Patriot" Act hit home. 2) I\’ve seen the real Stasi museum in Berlin… it\’ll make you cringe.At the end of the movie, you\’ll be thankful for how good you have it in life.

    Lives of Others was definitely a great film.  You saw Good Bye, Lenin! right?  That\’s a great film with a more comical look at Ostalgie.
