2 Good Movies

Thanks to IFC, I got to watch two unusually good films tonight: Jesus’ Son, and Never Get Outta the Boat.

I caught the first one about one third into the movie, and realized all over again that Jack Black is a good actor and a great humorist. And the film had little moments that stayed in my mind – touching the patients at a care centerl; the shock of the mentally ill person who has discovered that his wife is about to leave him; and listening to the Mennonite lady’s singing.

The second film was a good education about the shock, horror, and morbidity of addiction. The sort of reminder that everyone needs from time to time.
