A Steady Stream of Tears
There are movies that have made me cry. Often for just a short moment, or at a scene built for creating a couple tear drops.
For me it's the most random combination of movies like Big Fish, Schindler's List, World Trade Center, For Love of the Game, Dead Poet's Society, and Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, and I am Sam (to name a few).
But the films were I have cried most consistently through out the majority of the films are Hotel Rwanda and the documentary Paper Clips.
Last night, my wife and I watched Paper Clips and it was the most bizarre experience that I cried almost from start to finish...not because the entire film was overly emotional but it hit me in all the emotional themes that sometimes "get me."
Why are these the two movies that have made me continuously emotional? They are completly different films, but still there are many common themes between these two films. Can you seen any themes between Hotel Rwanda and Paper Clips. (I can see a few)
