Great movies about life behind the wall

There are many others, but for me, these convey the spiritual reality most brilliantly and movingly.

1. East/West
2. The Lives of Others
3. The Inner Circle
4. White Nights
5. Eminent Domain

Of these, White Nights is the easiest watching, and suitable for family viewing. East/West is devastating. Beautiful and brilliant and devastating. The Lives of Others (which—warning—contains some rather raw sexual images) is the newest, having been released to international acclaim in 2005, I believe.

I saw White Nights quite a while ago. I remember liking it. And Baryshnakov’(sp?) dancing was, as always, amazing. Gregory Hines dancing was great as well. The Lives of Others is on my to see list.

I love the movie White Nights also. I saw it a couple of years ago. I loved the tap and ballet dancing. It was so beautiful, amazing, and so much fun looking!
