Re: Movies Seen In 2013

Another Earth - DVR - HBO is showing this, so I recorded it. It's one of a few films I wanted to see. I also want to see Melancholy, Sound of my Voice and Safety Not Guaranteed.

I want to put this out right away, I really enjoyed this movie. I liked the performances, thought that both Brit Marling and William Mapother were outstanding. The movie has a Primer vibe to it, which I count as a positive. I can see why some people wouldn't like the movie, it's a bit plodding.

Lets get to the heart of the movie, are the events happening real or just part of her coping mechanism? After watching the movie I thought I need to know this answer, but after running through my head a few hundred times, I don't think so. I don't think knowing either way would make the movie any different. Rhoda is an unreliable narrator, even before the accident. So you can't believe a word she said or what we were shown. I like these heady forays into science fiction. Even when they aren't the greatest, still gives me hope.
If she's here, it's crystal clear, I'm where I'm meant to go.

Of course I'm a creationist. I believe man created god.
