Sunday is a day to relax. I know a lot of us lead busy lives and tend to use Sunday as a work day, but sometimes just taking a metal break can be healthy. I like to watch movies on Sundays, and to inspire you to take a relaxation day, I'd like to suggest a few of my favorites.
My eldest sister, Emily, first recommended the movie "Donnie Darko" to me when I was in eighth grade. This movie has a lot to do with time travel and psychology. It tends to be confusing at first, but all great movies are. Richard Kelly wrote and directed this film, and the two main actors are Jake Gyllenhaal and Jena Malone.
"Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" is about a man who finds out his ex girlfriend had a surgery done so that she would forget him and he then he wants the same done to him. This movie is one of Jim Carrey's only serious roles and I think he nails it. His ex girlfriend is played by Kate Winslet who gives the film a quirky spin. This film was directed and partly written by Michel Gondry.
"Fight Club" is another great cinematic work and when my boyfriend made me watch this movie a few years ago, I was skeptical at first because I thought it would only be violence and that I wouldn't like it. Granted, there is a lot of violence in this movie, but it's more than that. Give it a try and you won't regret it. Plus, who doesn't love Brad Pitt? Edward Norton and Helena Boham Carter are also principle characters in the film. This movie was directed by David Fincher and written by Chuck Palahniuk and Jim Uhls.
I wear many hats. I like to call myself a painter, a film maker, a photographer, a blogger, a sewer, a craft maker, a designer, an illustrator, and an inspirer. I do not know exactly what I want out of life yet, but I sure do know how to live it.
be inspired to be an original.
