"Children of Men."

I just returned from this movie and am at a bit of a loss for words. But I'll try.

Heartbreaking.
Punishing.

Those two words encompass much of what I have to say about the movie. You can read a plot summary anywhere so instead I'll tell you how I felt - in the first few seconds of the movie, while there is only narration before the picture appears on the screen, my stomach tied in a knot. A minute or so later, that knot clenched tighter, and it remained that way for the hour and fifty-minute running time.

Make no mistake - this movie is absolutely brilliant. I'm at a loss for words again, so just get yourself to the movies tomorrow if you can, because it's leaving theaters around here on Friday. If you have to wait for DVD, so be it, but give the big screen a shot if you can. You'll regret it if you don't.
