you provide an intriguing analysis.

i made the mistake of watching this film with my parents.
they were mostly dumbfounded.
i, however, was not. i found its meaning quite moving.
btw, requiem for a dream is one of my favorites. i bought it in a double disk set with pi.
did you like requiem? ever seen pi?

i know this may necessitate a new graph, but the spanish teacher in me cannot help but suggest a title for the x=15 category (seeing as it is currently blank). it is not a foreign film, but it is about a foreign culture. it is called Sweet 15 and is about a Hispanic-American family and their daughter’s QuinceaÃƒÂ±era.
Also, have you considered adding the movie Pie into the x=3.14 category (it is a movie that might be worth its own category), or generating a new category for 3< x < 4 (did I state that little math ditty correctly? it's been a long time since this spanish teacher did anything remotely resembling an algebraic equation...)

the formulaic graphing is enough to make me laugh out loud.
maybe you can get a theorem named after you. The Lund Theorem. Kind of has a nice ring to it. Movie-goers everywhere would finally have a practical application for math.

hmm. pleasantville is one of my favorite movies. we had to watch it in one of my grad school classes and analyze it for postmodern theory.
i can appreciate your review and interpretation- really, i can. for sure i can accept the idea that pleasantville can be interpreted as a criticism of traditional values.
in addition, though, what i like about the film is that it also defies maintaining tradition just for tradition’s sake. it allows for multiple perspectives and complex existence. one “right” way does not have to prevail.
with six years distance do you still feel the same way about it as you did in this review?

million dollar baby was good on so many levels. i was not expecting to spend the last 1/3 of the movie silently wiping away tears with my buttery popcorn napkin.

does the postmodern ethos propogate total neutrality and indistinction or does it suggest that distinction is a function of context and therefore neutrality (or non-elitist position) is the result of a variety of distinctions?
as a total aphilosophical tangent, at the gifted school where i teach the staff just had a discussion about the incredibles and the ways that distintions in the general population (i.e. gifted students) are often snuffed out in the public school environment just like the little boy character in the incredibles. it was a pretty interesting conversation.

might be nice to have warnings, too.

having grown up with a twin brother, i had regular first hand exposure that life was not fair at a very young age. everytime we went shopping and mom had to haul both of us into the stall with her, i got to hover while my brother got to stand.
needless to say, for a brief period of time i tried to adapt my brother’s method, which seemed so much better. mostly, i just ended up straddling the commode and making a mess.
to reference freud, penis envy indeed. what a cruel lesson for a little girl to learn. it became very clear that i would have a lifetime of hovering ahead of me.
but at least i get a good quad work-out in when i have to use public restrooms. sometimes when i am i in a public restroom and know that there are others sharing in my pain, i actually say out loud: “oh, yeah….feel the burn”- and women i’ve never met before giggle under the stalls. its an experience that men will never understand…
