Taking a little breather from poker-watched some movies tonight instead. Both subtitled foreign dramas: "No Man's Land" and "Life Is Beautiful"-the first is about the United Nations failure to do anything in the Bosnian-Serbian conflict (much like Rwanda) and the absurdity of and within war itself, as a wounded grunt lies on a mine with a Bosnian and a Serb in the trench with him; the latter is a tragicomic tale about an imaginative Jewish father's sacrifice during his family's imprisonment in a camp during WWII.
