One Week & Into The Wild

I have put some recommendations for  'ART ' movies on this blog & having recently expanded my view of what ART is, so am also expanding my list.

'One Week' & 'Into The Wild' are to me about LIFE as ART. Both include the winning components of SELF discovery, creativity, adventure, relationship & what it takes to remain TRUE to self, in order to be AUTHENTIC with others.

One Week This is a recent movie about a guy who finds out he has cancer & goes west on a motorcycle. Familiar premise, but a GREAT commentary about 'what would you do if you had a short time to live?' It's a Canadian movie filmed from east to west, PLUS this movie IS the soundtrack & visa versa. I've never watched a movie before where the great music actually TELLS the story as a character. ( http/www.imdb.com/title/tt1104806/soundtrack)

Into the Wild Some might say that this guy should have grown up. His innocent approach to life & his tragic end in a bus in the wilds of Alaska wouldn't have happened if he had achieved a certain maturity that comes with life. On the other hand he probably packed more deep experience into his short but rich life then most of us do in a lifetime.

So, if you're looking to be inspired by Life AS Art ; check out these two films for inspiration and a maybe a few tears. xo
