Welcome ya'll,

Thanks for checking out my blog. This is mostly my own crazy thoughts on a variety of subjects, but primarily they will be about movies, tv, and books. Being a movie junkie, rabid reader, and TV show-aholic, this blog is just another excuse to feed my addictions. [a quiet 'yay me']. Hope you enjoy, Clancy Metzger

"A Single Man"

This was an interesting movie starring Colin Firth. The supporting cast of Julianne Moore, Matthew Goode and Nicholas Hoult all do a great job. The story - It's about a man, George (Firth), who has lost his partner of sixteen years, Jim (Goode), to a car crash. The movie is one day in his life a year after that accident. A day George plans to be his last. Because George plans it to be his last day, he sees everything more vividly, more appreciatively. He lives more fully. And I think that is the beauty of this movie. We all need to live everyday as though it were our last, live it with clarity and with purpose. It is also a love story. And the moments captured between these two men, in flashback, are what any couple could hope for - simple joy in each other. Colin Firth's performance is brilliant as he can express love and grief without saying a word. Well worth the time to view, my friends.
