|09.16.06||Landmark Sunshine|| While visit a friend in NYC, I ended up seeing this at a Landmark theater in the Lower East Side. I'd heard that non-Dobie Landmark theaters were actually pretty cool... and they are for the most part right. It's built into an older building so you can still see the wooden support beams in the ceiling and old steel/brick construction around the windows... the seats were close together and the AC was barely working though. oh well.|
the movie... it's a doc about how the war sucks. Mainly it's about the wave of post traumatic stress disorder happening among returning troops and the government's general neglect of them. There are some good interviews with injured soldiers returned home disfigured but alive due to medical advances... and the problems they have with the whole situation, but on the whole I felt it was pretty much driving home things that I already know. I suppose it's good that movies like these are being made, but it also seems like there's 32 of them out right now... and all of them don't have the actual emotional impact of a film like The Best Years of Our Lives or The Deer Hunter... or I assume Coming Home although I haven't seen it so i could be completely wrong about that. Oh well... still fun to see a movie in NYC.
