In the Queue: Once

The 2007 Sundance winner, Once, ended up at my doorstep last night and made me wish for more films like it. It is a modern day musical set in Dublin by John Carney. The music was just my style but what really made me love them film was the long shots. It is hard to find movies these days where the frame does not change every few seconds. The actors are actually musicians and play all of the music in the film. I found the slow pace of the movie comforting and brilliant.

If you have any similar movie suggestions please, please let us know!!

    I thoroughly enjoyed Once as well. I liked its organic nature.
