Movies, in no particular order: Christiane F - Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082176/ If you watch this movie, make sure are in a very happy mood, or else you feel like jumping in front of a bus. It's the true story of a Berlin girl who was junkie and prostitute by age 13. Here are the firs two line from Roger Eberts review: " This is one of the most horrifying movies I have ever seen.

I took note of the email address (a hotmail address) and for the fun of it I sent out a test email. To my surprise i got a response. The person at the other was well aware it was used in the movie as he/she provided it to them. The person never identified who he/she was.

Hotel Rwanda http://imdb.com/title/tt0395169/ Based on "the true-life story of Paul Rusesabagina, a hotel manager who housed over a thousand Tutsis refugees during their struggle against the Hutu militia in Rwanda." Very powerful
Welcome to Sarajevo http://imdb.com/title/tt0120490/ The siege of Sarajevo as told by the reporters who were covering it. Woody Harrelson's best role in my opinion.
La Mala educaci�n aka The Bad Education http://imdb.com/title/tt0275491/ Really good movie. A movie about drugs, hustling, sex(gay sex, it's Pedro Amoldovar after all), cross dressing, murder and movie making.
Amores perros aka Love's a Bitch http://imdb.com/title/tt0245712/ By the same director as 21 Grams. The storyline is like the one in 21 Grams, but this movie is far, far better.

He's the one who plays Ernesto Guevara de la Serna (aka Che Guevara).
