Wristcutters: A Love Story – I found this movie late one night while perusing netflix and after reading the description I was very intrigued as, of course, I am on the same path (I’m too squeamish to cut though) but I also love quirky movies that take you on an adventure and are filled with both deep meaning and light hearted fun… needless to say I was really taken back with how much I enjoyed it and think that many here might get the same joy and satisfaction while riding along with the characters- it certainly let me escape for a bit while still thinking about the complexities of life and relationships.
Also, the movie put me on to some really great music by Gogol Bordello, as one of the characters is partly inspired by the bands’ leader, Eugene Hutz. Â A few of their songs that I really enjoy are “Through the Roof N Underground”, “When Universes Collide”, “Tribal Connection”, “Last One Goes the Hope”. Those are just a few that I think give a good taste of their amazing music style and lyrics.
Oh and Eugene Hutz is incredible alongside Elijah Wood in Everything Is Illuminated, another fantastic movie that is both a light-hearted and deeply moving adventure.
With the weekend about to be here, you should definitely give ’em a try, hope you enjoy them as much as I do (going to watch Wristcutters tonight myself)
