Films, Handle Subjects With Care

I am a fan of American films. On my peripheral focus the past couple of years are films that introduce to us individuals in difficult places in their life and lore, and proceed to handle them gently, with great care. Families and obligations, how we try, fail, travel and find some way to be.

In the "known" category are Jim Jarmusch's Broken Flowers, the popular Little Miss Sunshine, and the merlot-killer Sideways (book). In the "less known" category are the "masterpiece of mood" Lonesome Jim and the movie I saw two days ago, "Marty-esque" I want someone to eat cheese with.

When you have no deadlines and don't want to be anywhere specifically, grab a drink, watch these movies, and walk back home reminiscing.

The British do take it to another level. Spirited, hilariously dramatic!
