    Mzungu definitely wins in my book. Wouldn't it be refreshing to see a movie based on Africa, but from a completely different perspective than what is usually portrayed in the media and film industry.

    Its the little red X in the top right corner of your browser in Windows, or the little red circle w/ x in it, or possibly other options, depending on your browser. Also, is that necessary? I don't go to pages that don't interest me and post on them. Go look at what interests you on the web (its expansive), and why bother with negative/unsupportive comments on pages that don't? What is your intention there?

    Also- for those that are voting... Sole Survivor wins in my book. Mzungu looks very good, but also just a movie w/ a good story. Sole Survivor offers a glimpse into something rare and also very hard to understand or even feel empathy for. Seeing these stories would be profound.

    I cannot possibly vote for the Mormon movie because even though I don't practice anymore, I was raised Mormon. And I feel that if a person wants to explore any religion, they should go do that on their own through the faith... not in "expose" bitter former members and their biased views (any religion!).

    The falling movie makes me feel a little bit like, "oh great, another stupid love movie" although I do like the idea about an encounter after jumping... love just seems like such a easy street concept. It would be more awesome, to me, if he got caught up on people he's leaving behind, or seeing the consequence of his suicide. I also feel suicide is very serious and this seems to make light of it... that good things can still happen after you've given up all hope, thats nice if he wasn't about to jump. And then I start to think that a he's probably not in a healthy place to fall in love, being that he's committing suicide... what kind of love is that? There's a lot of unhealthiness going on there. And, being single in my 30's... the last thing I want to hear is ANOTHER, "its not too late for love".... So, I had a lot to say about a 5 minute concept, right!
