"The Master," was interesting in that I don't think there's ever been a movie like it -- in style, plot or character. It's worth seeing just for that. It's by the same guy who did "Boogie Nights," which is on my list of the top 20 best movies ever.
Did anyone see "How to Die in Oregon" on HBO? The title makes it sound like a boring policy documentary, but I found it riveting. The filmmakers focused on a few people who decided to commit suicide by doctor's prescription, including one who they followed through the course of her cancer.
