An entertaining documentary about people breaking records—mostly odd ones—to get into the Guinness book of world records. We understand why they do what they do and follow a few hows and so closes. We also get to see what happens to a guy's butt if he exercises on an exercycle for days on end.
A weird and wonderful journey by Haruki Murakami, this is now one of my favorite books of all time! The imagination is stunning and the fact that it all starts with a missing cat is beautifully simply :)
The ending is a touch underwhelming. But I highly recommend this book.
P.S. I find it highly annoying that a couple of chapters from the Japanese edition have been excised from the English translation :/
Insomnia is a Christopher Nolan film starring Al Pacino, Robin Williams and Hillary Swank. The film is effectively a psychological suspense murder thriller where the good guy has to - through a series of circumstance - work with the bad guy. Pacino and Williams are top notch and Swank is a little overeager. The plot is, even if a little contrived, intriguing, and the dialogue delivery well above par.
