Moments Over 127 Hours
On Friday night, I saw the latest Danny Boyle film, 127 Hours. The film is masterfully shot, meticulously edited, but most of all, has heart. This is a work, that despite all the hype surrounding the arm scene, is fundamentally about a man letting go and embracing the things in life that he holds most dear. If you have ever taken something for granted, been too involved in pointless things, or inadvertently hurt someone, 127 Hours has the ability to really speak to you. I know it did for me.
The film ends with a song by one of my favorite bands, Sigur Ros. So click on this link, lay on your bed, close your eyes, and feel alive.
