Movie Recommendation of the Week: Metroland

It’s always fun to see Christian Bale in movies before Batman or even American Psycho.   I think Psycho kind of started him on his rise to stardom. Anyway, if you guys haven’t heard of Metroland you should give it a try.   First of all I just want to mention how British this movie is.   I don’t know how else to describe it really.   But honestly it’s a great movie for all you young married dudes out there who feel your life is kind of stagnant.

It’s the story of Chris (Bale) who is a young suburbanite questioning his current life.  The sudden reappearance of his best friend Toni, after ten years absence, causes Chris to remember his past, to question some of his lifestyle decisions and to re-evaluate his life and marriage to Marion.

Plus for some reason Christian Bale is naked in this movie?  I certainly didn’t see that one coming.   Anyway, it’s a cool flick that kind of makes you think a lot.   No I’m not saying to go out there and cheat on your wife and make radical changes.   But I will say it’s one of those movies that makes you say “what if?”

Some choice moments….
