Enemy of the State
The Shawshank Redemption
This movie is a masterpiece that has always stayed with me. It explores so many subjects: endurance & perseverance, person's soul/spirit being snuffed after years of incarceration, cruelty, humanity.
Not many movies explore the deep & real love/affection two heterosexual men in life can have for each other: two life-long kindred spirits.
"I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up does rejoice. But still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they're gone. I guess I just miss my friend"
Very powerful movie. I find there's so much haunting beauty in the black-and-white movie amid so much carnage, and John Williams' score is mesmerising.
The beautiful Embeth Davidtz plays Helen Hersh who is supposed to work for Amon Goth (the commandant). I have to hold back tears watching the absolute terror/fear etched across her face/body in the movie. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yd_3-iMHiPg. Embeth was incredible.
The Pursuit of Happyness- it is very inspiring and teaches us that being a hard worker pays off. When we need or want something, we have to work for it. Life does not give very many free handouts. Chris Gardner was in a very low spot in his own life, but he chose to do all that he could to get out of that low spot.
I dont really like to be lectured to in a movie. It is patronizing and very annoying. But a while back I saw this children's scifi movie called Tomorrowland with George Clooney. It was just so alive.
