I'm a sucker for a redemption parable

With nothing better to do at work (you can only look at about 5000 different recipes for Jello shots before that gets boring), I decided to watch Angel Eyes, a J-Lo movie I had never planned to watch, as people told me it sucked. From Jello to J-Lo, Tee-Hee.

I loved it.

Let me repeat that. I loved it. I always thought it was some stupid horror/suspense flick. What I got instead was a great human condition movie, where people and life aren't perfect and an easy answer for everything doesn't exist. It was no Joy Luck Club(since it is the greatest movie, ever) but I could definitely see myself watching it again someday.

If anyone has any film suggestions for people who love this movie, let me know.

P.S. From a psych major point of view, I have to believe that this screenplay was written by a therapist. The dialogue at the end was textbook therapeutic breakthrough.

UPDATE(or P.P.S.) Billy from Six Feet Under was in it too. Yum!

j. lo & billy from six feet under
jeremy sisto is cuter on six feet under, don't you think? maybe they made him look ickier in the movie because he's supposed to be a wife beater and wife beaters generally aren't hot. anyhow. that's just my opinion.

i'd heard the movie sucked, too, but no one ever told me what it was about, so i was pleasantly surprised to find that it absolutely did -not- suck! in the warnings at the beginning of the movie, the first thing it said was "violence" and i'm not really sure why, because it really wasn't that bad at all.

He does look better in SFU, the second season, anyway. In the first season, he had longer hair and it didn't look as good.

Okeedokee, ready? (sorry to take so long, I deleted the email notice and just remembered about your q)

There aren't new episodes right now, they finished up in early summer (may or june). They are playing season 2 in order, the episode with Lisa, Ruth, and the baby is one of the last two of this season (I think it's the finale).

I haven't heard when the new season will start. I was reading in People (don't tell, but lately I can't stop buying that trashy mag) that Sarah Jessica Parker said that the new season of SATC won't be until summer. So after Sopranos finishes up, Oz will probably have a new season, then SFU. I hope anyway, to see one by March. With HBO, who knows?

If you want, I can make you copies of my crappy recordings of the shows. I'm missing some season two (but will fix that in the next few weeks), but have a complete season one, if you're interested.

i would love to see season one, but i can't afford to pay you to make me copies and send 'em. thanks a bunch for offering, though! and thanks a bunch for explaining to me what's going on. i wonder where i got the idea that i was watching a new season ... who knows? my perception of time couldn't possibly be anymore screwy and i was probably thinking of another show.

Re: :-)
don't worry about it. I buy tapes in bulk, and postage is cheap if I mail third class.
