  1. Pay it Forward is my fave! 😀

    American Beauty has to be one the most incredible, if not the most amazing, movies ever made. When it came out I watched it over the course of a week, every night. It was that special. I don’t know what it is about it, but there’s a certain feeling around it that captures the imagination!

    • It’s rich in thematic and motif detail–the roses, etc. Notice what’s happening when the roses are on camera and where they’re placed. The ending is also good. We studied it in a film appreciation class. A great flick, but not everyone can understand it.
