"The idea of an entertainment that entails leaving your common sense back at home does not appeal to me. You clap at what you see and feel happy with the mindless action in front of you because that’s what you have come to expect. It sells, I guess. So people are happy about it."

Very interesting.

This week I saw a screening of a great movie called Mongol. It was about Genghis Khan. It is the first part of a trilogy. It was in Mongolian. Great music and photography.
