Awake (2007)
While undergoing surgery, a young man (Hayden Christensen) experiences intraoperative awareness. He becomes fully alert – but paralyzed – and therefore cannot tell his doctors that he is not sedated and is enduring the whole process. Meanwhile, his wife (Jessica Alba) wrestles with demons of her own while her husband suffers through his ordeal.

I keep thinking about this movie. There are all these “awards” movies out there, and some of them (think JUNO) are really great, but others are just pedigree films that we “should” see but we don’t actually really want to see or enjoy seeing. Then there is AWAKE. This is a movie with a capital M. This is a movie where you just have a roller coaster great time. Leave your inner critic at home and just sit back and enjoy the riveting entertainment. It has amazing twists that even the lame critics who said “they didn’t like this film”, sheepishly admit was incredibly well done. I did notice that Roger Ebert didn’t follow the crowd and said it was great. Because it is. Awesome.
