Here are a couple films—I mean “movies”—that you might like. I certainly did.
Jesus’ Son – Billy Crudup plays “Fuckhead”, an almost lovable dufus with a poet’s heart and a penchant for heroin. The story follows his unintentional search for sobriety. There are some laugh-out-loud funny moments sprinkled with some harrowing and disturbing bits. Much to like here.
No Man’s Land – Set on the front lines of the Bosnian-Serb conflict, the movie spends most of its time following 3 men (a Serbian and Two Bosnians) trapped in a trench between the lines (“no man’s land”) This is also a movie with some very funny moments interspersed with violence and trained hatred. It’s a pretty powerful drama.
