Bad Education -- From Roger Ebert: "This is a movie we are intended to wander around in. It begins in the present with a story about the past, presents that story as a film within the film, and then, if I am not mistaken, there is a paradoxical moment when the two categories leak into each other. It's like 'Citizen Kane,' where the memories of one character curiously contain the memories of another."
The Color Purple- amaaaazing! I can watch this movie a thousand times. I think I've seen it about 30 times seriously! Whoopi was spectacular! Oprah was amazing and you loved to hate Danny Glover!
