(Post 46 of 50)

Some quick takes on the most relatively recent listings from the
1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die list

The last movie I saw (Live and Become) was a large story of youth on a grand storytelling scale. Osama is the opposite. It is a simple tale (and only 83 minutes) of a young girl in Afghanistan that is forced to pose as a boy in order to find work. Her inevitable being discovered under a harsh regime will not lead to a happy ending, but this is the Taliban we're talking about here. I liked that this film took me dramatically to a place and in a way I haven't been to before. That's what good movies do...even if the reality isn't a pleasant one.
