so, in my multi-tasking lifestyle, i view films as a means to inspire or learn or get my mind away from my reality or inform my reality. recently viewed on dvd : “everything is illuminated” and “kingdom of heaven”. both worthwhile and recommended. if you see “kingdom”, click on the historical dialogue box and you will learn quite a bit of history about the Crusades. Illuminated is about Jewish Eastern Europe and has a wonderful soundtrack and gut-wrenching memory scenes . It is whimsical and witty and also terribly sad. Full of metaphor – a work of art. i realized that i miss Jerusalem and will try to go back there in a year. insha’allah
