After I saw it, I was like “That…was seriously…the best movie I’ve seen in a while.”
This movie made you think, it made you itch to move. It was very deep in fact; from an artist’s standpoint, full of metaphor and pictorial allusions.
Man! There is just so much I could say about this movie; about how the magazine, is just really a metaphor for life, just look at how he interacts with the magazines, the covers, the words that pop up. Tell me this is not an inspiring movie. I could say so much more, but I don’t want to give any spoilers.
It’s also just a really good film if you’re just looking for a fun clean flick; this is a great date married movie.
For dinner, be adventurous; it fits the theme of the movie: go on google.com or yelp.com and look up an “exotic” cuisine. Now, “exotic” will really depend on your background; if you grew up eating Indian food, that’s not going to be very exotic for you. So, maybe try something different. For those Americans who grew up eating “American” food…as in hamburgers, hotdogs, baked beans, etc, here are some different types of cuisine that are yummy, but not so “out there” that you’ll be too scared to try it:
butter chicken or malai kofta or paneer masala (choose 1 or 2)
plain naan (it’s kind of like an elephant ear that you get at a fair, but not sweet and not poofy and more like a cracker…that makes no sense…but it’s good)
drink: mango lassi (a thin mango/yogurt smoothie…it’s thinner than a smoothie, but way more rich)
dessert: gulab jamun (yum! Ok, how do I describe this? fried cake balls soaked in a clear sugar syrup)
drink to try: bubble tea…(I suggest Taro flavor or Thai tea flavor)
(beef, tomato, & onions in a light dressing) …sorry I forgot the name, it was homemade by a friend visiting from Ethiopia. But it was amazingly good, light, and filling. Remember, with Ethiopian food, you use your hands, not utensils.
drink: Tej, Ambo, or Coffee (Ethiopia is considered to be the birthplace of coffee)
