[Picture was here, you missed it :)]
This was me on Friday on our way to the movies.We saw Changelling, the new movie starring Angelina Jolie.The story is about a woman who returns home one day to find her son missing. She informed the police and a few months later the police return a child to her. The woman keeps on telling everyone that this child isn't her son, but the police keeps on claiming that it is her son and is calling the woman crazy. The worst about all this, is that the movie is inspired from a true story! Once can only imagine what that mother had to go through. Just imagine all the emotional rollercoaster from your son disappearing, the police trying to persuade you that a random boy is indeed your son, then you're transferred in a mental facility because the cops beleive that you're crazy and delusional for not wanting that little boy in your house.The film is emotionally gripping, and at times very disturbing.
On Saturday, we went to see Saw V. I don't like horror movies at all but I've always been amazed by the charachter of the Jigsaw Killer in the SAW series. Jigsaw is a mysterious person who kidnaps people he sees as wasting their lives and attempts to "save" them by administering various inhumane tests. As opposed to other killers, Jigsaw does not actually intend to kill his subjects. The purpose of his traps is to see if the subject has the will to survive, and thus inflict enough psychological trauma for the subject to appreciate their life and save themselves from their own demons. Unfortunately, the tests are so severe that hardly does any of his victims survive. The movie begs the question of how much pain we would be willing to take in order to survive! I pictured myself being one of the victims of jigsaw and wondered if I'd have enough strenght to pass the test or if I would just give up and die right there and then. What would you do if you were kidnapped by a serial killer? Would you just recite your suras and wait for death? or would you fight for your life?
