How do I choose the movies I watch? Always with the objective to learn, but topic is chosen by mood. Today I was in the mood for strange.

The movie inspires wonder about coincidence, and what it really is or if it really is; if coincidence didn't exist in this story, then what would it be called? Conspiracy? Connection? Fact? Another thought is inspired by this film: Human's want to learn and when they are self motivated, they will pick a mystery through the bone to get at the marrow, without being pushed by anything other than curiosity and a desire to know. In the process of learning, more often than not these students find company with similar pursuit and new or affirming information. A good lesson for teachers.
Is this man, the one responsible for the tiles and the ideas behind them, insane? I suppose the same was asked about Copernicus, DaVinci, Einstein, Newton, Gallileo, and even Jesus of Nazareth. In the end it is about the ideas, not the man named James Morasco/Sevy Verna. In the end, it is a story that makes me smile for several reasons.
Some of the scenes in the film include some beautiful artwork; I was impressed by water color images in mostly black and sepia tones, with very sophisticated and emotionally expressed characters. While I couldn't find the artist, I did find the that Justin Duerr (the protagonist) is an artist and I've chosen to show you my favorite pieces by him.
