Watched The World's Fastest Indian with Anthony Hopkins. What a delight. Hopkins' performance was....perfection, authentic, a masterpiece. What delight he held for this character. The kiwi accent (I'm told it sounded authentic) was astounding...it all came off so damn natural...authentic. Hopkins is such a master, and I have to believe he totally adored this role. It's a small film...intimate, revealing, a struggle. Well worth watching.

Here's how Pirates crack Microsoft Windows Vista Activation Server and I always wondered What Happens To Your Body If You Drink A Coke.
My wife found this in an ALDA newsletter.
In the recent movie, “The Interpreter”, Nicole Kidman’s character, Silvia Broome, speaks to the issue of forgiveness and letting go of past wrongs:
dropped. He's bound so that he can't swim. The family of the dead then has to choose. They can let him drown or they can save him. The Ku believe that if the family lets the killer drown, they'll have justice but spend the rest of their lives in mourning. But if they save him, if they admit that life isn't always just... that very act can take away their sorrow.”
"The only way to end grief is to save a life." What a concept.
