I really do need a daytime job. Instead, I watch Passions and Dr. Phil and Oprah. These shows sort of eat away at your soul and make you unnecessarily obsessed with things. Ugh. Well, Dr. Phil and Oprah anyhow. Passions, on the other hand, is absolutely amusing. I love it. But really, I need a day job.

I watched a great Holocaust movie last night -- if there is such a thing. It's a story of righteous gentiles who harbor the son of their former boss amid the Nazi regime. The flick, "Divided We Fall," is a Czech film and is absolutely brilliant. Acting, storyline, presentation, sensitivity, etc. It's just an all-around stellar film. It's two hours long, but was honestly the quickest two-hour movie I've ever viewed. It's intelligent and passionate and centers on David Wiener (the escaped Jew) and Josef and his wife, Marie, who harbor him in a cupboard, while all the while a Nazi party member visits daily. Toward the end, to save themselves from imminent danger, they do something that would take a completely and absolutely strong group of people. I highly recommend it, anyhow.
