Riding Alone For Thousands of Miles

leave a comment »

The Son recommended the move Riding Alone For Thousands of Miles, and I finally got around to watching it. While I watched, I thought it was good. After I finished the movie and thought it over, I thought it was very good. And now, a couple of days later, I’m beginning to realize that it’s exceptionally excellent. For one thing, it deals with a difficult theme: our desire to be close to other people, and how what we do gets in the way and is often irrelevant. And yet we continue to work toward closeness.

But the exceptional thing about the movie is the way the images so completely embody the ideas. Really, as I think about it and remember the various scenes, it grows on me what an amazingly good movie this is.

Watch it, and then take a day or two to think about it and remember the scenes and discoveries.
