Favourite Movies

Sunday, May 18, 2008

For our 8th wedding anniversary, DH and I went out for dinner at Domus, then to a movie. We had trouble choosing a movie because of the types of movies that were out. Speed Racer? No way. What Happens in Vegas? I don't think so. We were in the mood for a quiet film; something that focussed on interesting people rather than special effects or action.

We went to the movie theatre with no idea what to see. It's one of those enormous places with 24 different theatres inside. The clerk at the ticket booth told us a bit about both of the movies that held any promise (ie. those we hadn't heard of). We settled on The Visitor. Turns out, it was exactly what we were looking for. It was a gentle movie with awesome writing and acting. Richard Jenkins was perfect. And I just loved the energy and charisma of Haaz Sleiman.

My list of favourite movies would be pretty long, so I'll list a few of my favourites in this genre.
Magnolia. The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. The Barbarian Invasions.

We had a great time celebrating our marriage and enjoying good food and a good movie.
