Film Fest Time

127 Hours.  Hard to watch, but worth the discomfort.  An amazing film about what seems an unfilmable event - a climber trapped by a falling boulder that pins his right arm to the wall of a narrow stone canyon... just a crack in the earth.  Gotta be tough to film an action movie where the hero can't move!  Beautifully photographed.  And a brilliant job by James Franco, who was nominated for an Oscar (and I can't now believe he didn't win).  It reminded me a bit of Castaway, both being of the man-trapped-alone-with-big-problem genre.
