Fellow Movie Buffs

Wow! Reviewers either loved or hated this movie. And I can see why. It's considered a classic and it's one of the first movies Richard Linklater made. The whole movie is a continuing dialogue by a bunch of pretentious college students. I thought it was a bunch of fun.

"Twice Born"

This movie features Penelope Cruz at her best. I don't know why she isn't cast in more movies and isn't recognized as the great actor that she is. Anyway, this movie is about an Italian woman who returns to Bosnia with her son, 16 years after she lived there during the war. It brings up numerous memories and the movie jumps back and forth in time. Ms. Cruz does an amazing job and while the movie is pretty depressing, it is also quite powerful. Well worth watching.
4.5 stars out of 5
