I've run across stuff on PBS that's wrong for kids to be filmed in.

Money talks, but all it tells me is goodbye.

If I could meet myself as a boy...

I agree, definitely.

I would be lying to say that the entire scene in Hard Candy where he is tied to the table, I was somewhat envious that I wasn't Ellen Page. I think that's why I can't really watch these movies. I'm not entirely sure what some of my triggers are and I definitely am still working on how to deal with myself when it comes up.

I find consolation a lot more in music, movies are just always too real for me.

I usually avoid all of these movies when I go to Blockbuster and pick up indies like the big nerd I am, maybe I need to sit one out and think about it after. Any suggestions for one not so intense to start out with?

It's getting hard to be someone, but it all works out.

i just finished watching for a lost soldier. wow. foriegn films can get away with much more graphic scenes. really interesting actually. i think almost that the implied scenes that american films have are much more "triggery" because your mind fills in the blank. but, for a lost soldier is not for those who are affected by watching scenes of abuse. was a good film
