Movie Review by Zara
March 29th, 2007

I'm on the lovin' it side

I took forever to watch this movie based on the fact that I'm not always a huge fan of ensemble movies. Too many big name people and it seems like a bit of a joke to me, a movie designed to get butts in the seats with little regard to actually making a good movie.

I finally watched it after it won the Oscar, curling up on the couch on a day out of my holiday last year, my daughter in school and the house quiet for once. While there are moments in the movie which are a little forced (and the whole relation of what it's like to live in Southern California is overdramatized) the movie still holds a VERY powerful message.

What happens when we finally stop and look at things from a perspective outside of our own? Rather than just hating everyone automatically, would we learn forgiveness for some of the infractions on manners and morality?

I can understand how people wouldn't like this film if taken for face value. It really is one of those movies that is better appreciated by the people who want to look for a deeper meaning than just what is offered to them on the surface.

I haven't seen this flick yet, either, but when I read the description just now it intrigues me. It seems like a pretty good, deep, movie. I'll give it a look-see.

Man, the scene that the poster of this movie comes from is a heartbreaker, I promise you.
