How To Induce Nightmares and Have a Sleepless Night

1. Pop in "Taste of Cherry" and contemplate what is going through this Iranian man's mind that he wants to commit suicide so desperately. Enjoy the scenery, the cinematic style, and the striking images, but end on one of the creepiest shots ever (or maybe that's just me b/c being buried alive is possibly the worst way to die in my book).

2. Follow that movie with "Hotel Rwanda" and watch the drama of a hotel manager attempting to aid over 1200 Tutsis refugees during the Hutu extremists' genocide in Rwanda unfold. Learn to avert your eyes when you see the flash of a blade or the carpet of dead bodies.

3. Try to have sweet dreams. Fail miserably.
