Four Movies, Four Days.
Well thanks to the President's Day we had four movies this weekend.
Friday night's flick was "Just Like Heaven
" and it certainly gives meaning to the search for one's soul mate. In one scene the two main characters touch hands. At this point in the story, one of the people is a spirit.
I was reminded of the visits that occurred at the county jails. Many county jails have what is known as non-contact visits. In this setup, there is a solid glass window between the visitor and the alleged criminal. Communication is either through a grill or tiny holes in the glass or telephone style handsets.
During the course of the visit, it is common to see the persons on each side of the glass hold their hands to the glass in an attempt to have the affect of physical contact. I am not sure if anyone else who has seen this movie drew that same connection.
The other movies this weekend were "Half Light
," and "The Constant Gardener
"The Constant Gardener" explores the possibility of the way business and government can work together for the good of only themselves.
