    Exclamation The Constant Gardener

    A 2005 dvd starring Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz. Have you ever wondered about all those rumors on how the BigPharmas test their 'wonder drugs' on humans? This movie is set mainly in Kenya and is a very powerful indictment of pharmaceutical drug testing. Even worse, my sons girlfriend comes from Kenya and can personally verify the happenings in this movie. It's a must watch to confirm all your suspicions.

    It's sitting on my desk right now, mailed from Netflix, but already tonight it's too late to view it. Perhaps tomorrow?

    Just spoke with my NYC daughter and she thinks I'll like it too. We generally agree on films, disagree 180 on books.

    How do you watch a DVD without a TV set Islander?

    Great film! The book is amazing as well (John le Carre), well worth a read.

    Ha, DVDs on the computer... I've got a good setup: my UK DVD collection on my laptop with beautiful high-def wide screen (set to UK regional zone), my NZ ones on my NZ DVD player (old as the hills and not multi-zoned, but does the job - don't see the point in replacing things just for the sake of it). Perfect solution to having an enormous DVD collection purchased in two different continents, lol.
