16. I will tell you about my experience with this movie --
I had tears leaking out of my eyes for fully one-third of the movie, especially at the end. That's no exaggeration. The woman next to me kept moaning every now and then. When I stood up after the movie ended, I had to willfully keep my mouth closed or else, stricken with the onset of a sudden case of Turets Syndrome, I would have yelled "Fuck you Mr. Bush!" outloud.

All I can say is that the movie was profoundly disturbing, and this comes from someone who already knew that my dear nation is on the slippery slope toward a repressive regime.

My husband and I are going to see it again tonight.

This movie touched something in me that made me realize that if push ever came to shove in some heinous, surreal future, I would be one of the ones that would say, "this far and no further".
