Room ★★★½

If I'm reviewing it as cinematic art, it's worthy of some praise. It's a good movie, not exemplary cinema.

But if I'm writing about about its effect on me, well — my heart was just hit by a bus. This is thematic territory that runs too deep for me to be able to write about it very objectively. This movie gives me ways to talk about things that I care about very deeply.

So I am extremely thankful for it.

And I will have a lot of writing to do before I can scratch the surface of what I mean.
