between children of men, babel, and now trade, this fall 2006/2007 seems like it will be an interesting movie season with some very interesting writing. trade, is a movie about human trafficking.

and here is the trailer for half nelson, starring ryan gosling, who i thought was very good in the much underappreciated movie, stay, about a man dealing with his impending suicide. in half nelson, he plays a young inner-city teacher who is coping with his drug addiction.
