    City of God is a breathtaking experience. One of those movies that will creep into your thoughts for weeks after you view it. It's a visceral, stylish assault on your senses. I just watched Fernando Meirelles' (City of God's co-director) new film The Constant Gardner. It was really quite good also, but it's certainly not the jarring rollercoaster ride that City of God was.

    It's just a movie you have to experience once, even if it has a lot of ugly, ugly realities to it. Get it now.

    The sealed Amazon box is sitting right beside me. It arrived this afternoon.:)

    I don't know if I'll have a chance to watch it tonight. I've been a model consumer this week, sinking lots of dough into DVD purchases.

    This weeks newbies:

    Lord of War
    F for Fake
    Fitzcarraldo
    Burden of Dreams
    The Constant Gardner
    Hustle and Flow
    The Grizzly Man
    and today of course Samurai Assassin

    Yikes... :greedy:

    I dunno if you'll like Hustle And Flow, but I liked it a lot. It's about Memphis hip hop, so it's cool to me.


    I have yet to see The Constant Gardner, I guess I should rent that...
