People tend to shy away from subtitled movies...not because they cannot read, but because they fear missing something while they are reading, something visual. You won't miss a thing, couldn't possibly. My daughter and some roommates are going to see it this evening. You're right, it's not playing in overmany theatres. If you can find it, it's worth it. I believe it already won some foreign award.

How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

Last movie I saw at the theater was some kids movie and it wasn't very good so the name is not imbedded in my brain .

Relative Strangers was the last DVD we rented to watch at home. It was okay....had some funny moments.... but not one I'd rent again.

I am thrilled to learn that Pan's Labyrinthe is worth seeing. I was going to see it with a friend when I was back in UK but didn't for some reason, and now DH was doubting whther it was worth renting....we not rent films very often, but I'll tell him now I have heard from real people, not just critics, that we should rent it!

richard attenborough's "gandhi".

one of my all time favourites. it's difficult not to be inspired by this movie. every time i watch it, i come away with another set of ideas and great quotes to ponder.

"poverty is the worst form of violence" was one from last night.
in nomine patri, et fili, et spiritus sancti.
beidh ar la linn.
wisdom is often in short supply within ones' ego.

Oh yea I forgot The Queen with Helen Mirren - she's great, takes place during the week Diane is killed in that car crash. Tony Blair is new in office. Interesting stuff.
