Just saw Mystic River, a somber, gritty movie about three men who suffered/witnessed a horrific event in their childhood in blue-collar Boston and how each of them was shaped by that event later in life. Not a light, fluffy, family movie. I seem to be drawn to these kinds of serious, dark, troublesome movies lately. I don't know whether it's that I'm getting older or if it's because so many of the movies out there are crap. On the other hand, I am looking forward to the new Ben Stiller/Owen Wilson venture, Starsky & Hutch, so perhaps all hope is not lost.
