Blue Sky Days

Babel

It has to be one of the most disturbing films I’ve ever seen. All stereotypes are played on, all prejudices are shown. It is both metaphorically and emotionally powerful. Warning, pretty gross scenes involving a nude woman and a masturbating kid. Babel has a similar story outline to Crash; everything doesn’t flow in order but the audience won’t know until the later portion of the film.

Jim Yardley used this simile to illustrate Beijing’s attempt to be “greener” in the article Beijing’s Olympic Quest: Turn Smoggy Sky Blue

Beijing is like an athlete trying to get into shape by walking on a treadmill yet eating double cheeseburgers at the same time.

Blue Sky Days! haha. New York City doesn’t get too many of those either. I should start my own Blue Sky Day log. Beijing better get some Blue Sky Days before 08-08-08!
