Two films

I have seen two films in two days.  Both films have left me devastated, breathless, bodily affected, surprised, perplexed.  I have come out of both films feeling exhausted, looking dishevelled and with a handbag full of soggy tissues.  It will take some days to think about these films and consider my reaction after there is some distance between me and the experience.

Yesterday the film was Lars von Trier's "Melancholia".  I knew nothing about the story and if you possibly can see it in a naive state DO IT.

Today the film was "The Descendants" starring George Clooney.

Music features heavily in both films and is a vital part of both films' landscape.

See these films if you possibly can.  That's all I can say right now.
