Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Yup! Pi was a total trip. Way better than a beautiful mind IMO. super paranoia is always fun.
Darren Aronofsky movies: in order:
Requiem for a Dream (Cost of addiction) Black Swan (Cost of obtaining perfection) The Wrestler (Sacrifices to find lost glory) The Fighter (Redemption, achieving in the face of adversity, overcoming past and present circumstance) The Fountain (Losing loved ones)
Don't watch all at once, it will make you suicidal. I mean, his happiest movie is "The Fighter", which looks like the little mermaid if you compare it to Requiem for a Dream. Dark powerful stuff.
Also, another note, Lux Aeterna (song from RFAD soundtrack) makes anything 100000x dramatic. You could watch someone peel a banana in a park, but with this music it makes it the most epic banana being peeled ever. You've heard this song before, but link below. It builds until like 2:20.
Since these are miniseries, they cannot make the list, but I would just like to mention:
BAND OF BROTHERS! (Best media portrayal about WW2 ever. Rivals Schindler's list in quality. Steven Spielberg had a huge part of the making so heh, what can you expect I guess...) Spartacus: Blood and Sand (All you Gladiator/Braveheart/300 fans, watch this, its like 300, but with actually compelling characters, plotlines, schemes and twists. Fantastic dialog too) The Pacific (Loved the character focus, and also the fact that 1/10 films are about European theatre. I like the increased effort to look at the Pacific Theatre)
My favorite director too, humphy. Have you watched Pi.
"Pi cost only $60,000 to make, most of which was raised in the form of individual $100 contributions from the director's friends and family. When it was later bought by Artisan Entertainment (for $1,000,000.), each contributor got back a $150 return on their investment."
Bicycle Thief: Family, unemployment depicted very well 12 Angry Men: Henry's leadership qualities + the idea of a "possibility". A revolution is "possible" if the right message is inferred. One who flew over the cuckoo's nest: The idea of being institutionalized Memento: Abstract and very well connected Requiem for a Dream: Dark movie with great substance. Quit "something" after watching this
