A Movie Worth Writing About

So, I just watched Travelers and Magicians and it's the first movie I've seen in a while that I would actively recommend. Not only is it a good movie, it takes place in Bhutan. I believe it may be the only major motion picture ever made in Bhutan.

Everyone always wants to know how I find the movies that I put on my Netflix queue, and I can never remember. But this time I remember. In the book, The Geography of Bliss, the author goes to Bhutan because it's a country more interested in Gross National Happiness than Gross National Product.

Anyway, if you want to see Bhutan without the jet lag, if you like stories of the modern world clashing with tradition, if you liked The Alchemist, rent the movie. It's good.
