Everything is Illuminated

Post by Surrealist » Fri Oct 06, 2006 4:31 pm

Although not a very new movie, I went to see this when it came out while I was visiting in Pittsburgh. It is in my opinion one of the best movies of the year, with an amazing cast, a great story, etc. check this one out!

Note: stars Elijah Wood and Eugene Hutz, the latter of which being the frontman for the gypsy punk rock band Gogol Bordello)

Butane in my veins and I'm out to cut the junkie
With the plastic eyeballs, spray-paint the vegetables..."

I enjoyed it much; it actually made the book make more sense to me in retrospect.

I love Alex's character. It was a really nice story... interesting that the movie makes such a big shift in tone about midway through, when it moves from being farcical to being poignant.
