Must-See Movie: The Air I Breathe
Much like yesterday's Must-See Movie, The Fountain, The Air I Breathe features 4 stories that get woven together (each based on an ancient Chinese proverb that breaks life down into four emotional cornerstones: happiness, pleasure, sorrow and love). However, unlike The Fountain, The Air I Breathe is the kind of movie I would suggest to absolutely anyone (except kids...). It's got romance. It's got some mob action. Its got drama. Its got car chases and guns. Its got tragedy. And it has artistic merit. Directed by Jieho Lee and starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Brendan Fraser, Forest Whitaker,Andy Garcia, and Kevin Bacon, it came out in 2007 but surprisingly not many people have heard of it.
