Warmly recommended: Postcards From the Edge
One of the funniest films I know, while being much more than a comedy. It is written by Carrie Fisher (based on her book), and it has the most amazing dialogue.
Also in it, Meryl demonstrates that she is a fantastic singer. Did you know?
I have found the ending song from the DVD, it is a real favorite of mine, I am sure you can't get it on CD anywhere. I put it up here as an MP3 file
, so you would get it, love it, and buy the movie.
One comment: these are items which defy description and classification. The song is country... which I really dislike generally. But not this one. And the film, if you read about it, you think you know what it is about. But trust me, it is really not like any other movies. It is one of those rare things where everything just comes together and it burst out of any envelope which may try to contain it.
One of my best friends is a fierce individualist. When this movie was in the theatres, he was thinking of going to see it, and he asked me of my opinion. I said it was the best film I'd ever seen. Then he said "then I won't go see it". That was just too much hype for his taste! :) You just can't win.
