For as long as I can remember there’s been this longing in me to go and be among the homeless. I’ve always felt homeless and alone practically all my life. Now and then I think “Why not go and make it official.” To some that might sound like a tragedy and to others it might give an ounce of hope. I always think about Siddhārtha Gautama’s journey, Jesus and his journey in the desert, the journey that so many people are embarking on of self-discovery, adventure, and to find peace within. Anyway, here are some movies about homelessness that you might enjoy.
1. Cardboard Boxer
This movie stars Thomas Haden Church and many of you might remember him from the movie “Sideways” and he’s a complete different character here. As I was watching this movie I was thinking about things like manifesting destinies, affirmations, and synchronicity. It was for me a real tear jerker.
2. A Street Cat Named Bob
This movie was decidedly “cute.” I felt a connection to all the characters and the music was great. I’m thinking about getting the soundtrack. If you like movies like “Once” then you should most certaintly give this one a go!
This movie stars Jennifer Connelly and Anthony Mackie and I started it but didn’t end up finishing it. I was hoping that I would share it with the hopes of getting some feedback on it.
