I've realized lately that when I finish watching a movie I often have questions or observations that don't fit into any of the threads we have. Same goes for random thoughts about actors, movies, directors, etc. that just op into my brain. Threads like Movie Buzz and Write About The Last Movie You Watched are great threads, but they are pretty specific and I don't want to derail them with borderline off-topic musings. So I made this topic, hopefully I won't be the only person in this topic asking questions, one is the loneliest number after all.
I just finished watching Auf Der Anderen Seite (The Edge Of Heaven) from 2007, and what a great movie. There's lots to love about it, especially Nurgül Yesilçay who is just amazing, but the movie reminded me a lot of Babel. Then I got thinking about why this movie was pretty much ignored the year it came out while the completely forgettable Babel was a huge hit the previous year? I just wonder why people were so accepting of the convoluted Babel and this fine film has remained ignored?
That's my random thought, and this thread is soon to be populated by a ton of them, I'm crazy like that.
