    Im so glad you reviewed Everything is Illuminated! Its one of my favs, but you have to watch it again because its one of those movies that gets better. Fonzo, I think you’re right about the scene at the end being “jonfen”s realization that everyone in the world is the same. He goes the whole movie feeling so different and ostracized from his own society as well as the Ukraine, then after everything realizes that everyone is different and weird, but essentially we are all alike. I was also surprised you didnt discuss how the people in the movie seem to idolize americans: sammy davis jr(jr), michael jackson, shaquille… As if we are living some more glamorous lifestyle than them. I thought this was sort of a way of showing how everyone in the world finds the grass greener on the other side, like how the granfather found it better to not be jewish, before he realized what he had given up. Sorry if Im rambling.. I just love this movie!

    Long live tratchenbroad 🙂

    I hope Squirrel Master is there for Kenny-I mean Harley. I heard he gets out in 11 days though….

    I’m glad you enjoyed our review! No you’re right. There perspective of American way of life consists mostly of 1980′s pop culture. Clad in Adidas jumpsuits and multiple gold necklaces, Alex embraces Americana by idolizing Michael Jackson, and break-dancing. Alex’s view of Americans eventually changes for the better. I just really enjoyed how the film wrapped up in the end. Thanks again for listening Melanie!
