Yes! The films that stick with you long after the final credits roll past and make you think, those are the good ones.

I still wonder why such a small distribution here in the States. After all the junk shown you would think they'd find room for a movie with such an interesting story line.

You're right. I'm getting too old to figure these things out.

I finally had a chance to sit down and watch Good a couple weeks ago. I think it was brilliantly done, and really took my breath away.

I cried a great deal too, it's just one of those topics that always brings me tears, and all I could do by the end of the movie was sit in silence and stare, and be angry, and sad, and angry again, and then appreciate how difficult this movie was to bring to life, and applaud the work of everyone involved.

I'm glad they fought to have it made, and I'm so glad Jason had a part in it. I might not have known about it if he was not part of it, and that would be sad.

Yes Good was an excellent movie. You'll appreciate Jason even more knowing he was filming Brotherhood at the same time. Flying back and forth. Don't know how he did it.

He was quite x-l-nt. But, I cringed when I saw the state of his suit in the first scene with Halder. When they went for beers. The jacket was so wrinkled. He must've been sitting on it for hours. Or, it's the type of fabric that wrinkles easily.
LOVED the extras. His interviews are always nice to watch. *thefactthatmyplayerzoomssocloseissomuchfun*

Hahah the extras were great! I'm glad there was so much interview footage, as well as behind the scenes stuff. I find it fascinating to see how the cameras are placed and all the things you don't see in the finished product. :)

I just need to send the copy I have back to Netflix... ahem.

I always love to watch the DVD extras to take a glimpse of the creative process (behind the scenes, interviews, bloopers, the director's comment etc). It's almost as entertaining as the movie. :D

I watched this last night. A very thought provoking and touching film.

It amazes me how it didnt recieve any well deserved awards or even more recognition than it did here in the UK. IT was very well written. It made you think, which is what quality films should do.
