500 years and counting....

~every now and then a movie comes along that strikes me in a certain ineffable manner. Its a rare feeling that doesn't come along often, so when it does, I feel a need to share this feeling that inspires, ires, and irks (excuse the alliteration). Even the Rain is one of those movies for me. The movie, set in present day Bolivia, adeptly illustrates the parallels between the exploitative and cruel treatment of the Conquistadores with the downright oppressive conditions under which the largely indigenous population of Bolivians live today.So as not to spoil the movie for any readers, I will leave it at that...Recommended!
