Weird Movie Wednesday

Lars is a deeply sensitive,

Lars and the Real Girl is listed as an comedy for some reason, but it was very sad to me. Maybe the humor was lost on me. The first time I saw this movie in 2007 I was left thinking, "How bizarre???" Upon further review I now think, "Now that's what I call real acting!" Brilliant acting from Ryan Gosling, Emily Mortimer, and Paul Schneider. Such an unbelievable story actually felt awkwardly real.

I just watched this for the first time last week, and I was pleasantly surprised. For me, I think the movie would be better pegged as a dark comedy. There certainly was humor in the situation, but there was also that undertone of sadness that couldn't be ignored.

Yes that's what it was exactly!
