I AM - The Movie

(Portland opening - at my favorite deli with some of his fans, I'm sure.)

Sometimes a story comes along that you know is still in the making, but it makes you smile, and you can't wait to tell someone about it. I think the movie I AM, The Shift Is About To Hit The Fan, which is just now being released in limited venues, is going to be a must-see for 2011.

Director Tom Shadyac was wildly successful with hits Ace Ventura - Pet Detective, Liar Liar, The Nutty Professor and Bruce Almighty. Then he had a bad bicycle accident, which started him on the path he is now on - giving his fortune away to those less fortunate, doing away with the private jet, going from a three-home estate to diggs far less grand in a trailer park, and making a movie that just might matter. The money will benefit his foundation. It opened to packed houses in Portland, with standing ovations for Shadyac, who was in the audience.

Here is the trailer:

Amazing movie. Even more amazing that someone would make a movie like this.

Our daughter has a magnet on her fridge, saying, "It's all about me."

No love; it's all about US! When the individual becomes more important than the society, the society rots. Sad, but true.

we are all connected at the most fundamental level because the thing that animates us, animates everything, life, the soul, it is all the same thing, all from one source.
