Sometimes you come across a film that evokes every emotional reaction. Laughter, tears, anger, sorrow and hope. Last year I watched one of these films with my husband. I walked in one night to hear him laughing hysterically. I sat down next to him and was surprised at what I saw. My husband is city and I'm country. He was watching an HBO Documentary on the lives of people living in Anderson, IN. For those of you who don't know, Anderson has a racetrack (car) and that's what people do there. It is their source of entertainment and for a few, a chance to win a little money or lose a lot. Money most of these people can't afford to lose. They don't have mechanics. They work on their own cars or have friends help. There is no other work to be had in this small community. What work there was once has closed down and moved out. It is rapidly turning into a ghost town. Very sad indeed.
My Pick of the Week: Dirty Driving: Thunder Cars of Indiana
For anyone who has ever lived in small town America, this documentary is a must see. For those of you who haven't, I recommend it to you as well so that all can see how people everywhere struggle, fight and love when all odds are against them. I will warn that this is for adult viewing only.

Horror movies. Either you love them or you hate them. I love them. One of the best horror films (IMO) is a black and white silent film made in 1922.F.W. Murnau's Nosferatu.
This cult classic is an adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula. Max Schreck as Count Orlok is the creepiest vampire I have ever seen. ( Sorry Barb, I know you like your vampires sexy.)
My pick of the week: Nosferatu
