Trout Thank Me
Has anyone else seen this? (It’s available On Demand for free.) I found it totally captivating. I think I am fascinated by these kind of stories where people do what others cannot because i am so afraid of many things. I live vicariously through these people and wonder what makes people want to do such things. I love to read books about mountain climbers, firefighters who gave their lives fighting huge fires. I read a couple of books about the soccer team who crashed into the Andes Mountains.
I found Alex to be so interesting, he’s definitely a different kind of person. In fact there is a part in the movie where he is given an MRI and it shows a part of his brain that doesn’t respond to fear like other people do. I liked Alex and yet i would never want him for a friend, a son or a husband. Alex might be on the Asperger spectrum too. He would be a difficult man to live with. His girlfriend seems to understand that he needs to do this even as she may know she is in for some heartbreak if she stays with him.
Anyway, I thought it was great and if anyone has seen it i wonder what you thought.
