The butterfly lady and I watched The Tunnel the other night, a movie I picked out on a whim from Netflix.
I think I was predisposed to enjoy it, having been waaay into German/East German history and dynamics when I was in high school.
Whatever. The Tunnel was great, one of the best/most entertaining movies I have seen in quite a long time. It sure as hell beat Babel and, to pick another non-random example, Crash.
I wish more action/adventure/suspense movies were this good.
