June Movie Night

Related topics:

We have had a series of really depressing movies lately, so this month we will be viewing I Heart Huckabees. Co-written and directed by David O. Russell, a former student of Eido Roshi, I Heart Huckabees is one of the most Buddhist movies in the English language, despite (or because of) never using the B word. It is also one of the funniest movies ever made. A screwball comedy about existential angst, I Heart Huckabees has an all star cast, and lots of insight in between the belly laughs.
