Chaos Theory- Great GTD Comedy Movie

I saw Chaos Theory at the movie theater this weekend.
It is a hilarious, but at times bleak comedy about a David Allen-like lecturer on time management named Frank Allen (Ryan Reynolds) who has some life changing experiences after his wife (Emily Mortimer) sets back the time on the clock that runs his perfectly micromanaged life.

Once Frank embraces randomness and chaos, he learns about the positive aspects of constant change.
Worth seeing 4/4stars

Stars Ryan Reynolds, Emily Mortimer, Stuart Townsend
Written by Daniel Taplitz, Directed by Marcos Siega

My Kid Could Paint That -DVD Review

'The Art lies in the declaration itself'
Michael Kimmelman, an art critic explaining what modern art is - from a dvd extra included with 'My Kid Could Paint That' the 2007 documentary by Amir Bar-Lev about a 4year old artist from upstate New York named Marla Olmstead, her family and her rise to fame, fortune and controversy.
The first half of the film explores her discovery and rise as an art phenomenon.
The second half explores controversy about the authenticity of her work. Was it all her own, or was she helped by her parents?
A fascinating documentary about art, truth, celebrity and our times.
The DVD extras are highly informative about the workings of the modern art world and are well worth watching.

I rented it from Netflix

My Netflix rating 5/5
Standard rating:4/4
