Now just exactly who is Plato and who is Socrates in this equation? Cause fuck, I'll just stay out.
You are Socrates, of course. You are the teacher.
Goddamn right I am.

Sticks in your mind.
There haven't been a lot of movies out lately that have really stuck in my mind as excellent, and really, this one has. It captures Louisiana lifestyles, something that may be changing now forever, while portraying human emotions on a real and raw level. The filming is excellent, the score is excellent, and the story, or in someways stories, that are unfolding as the movie progresses, are naturally, excellent. I don't normally like John Travolta, but this I honestly believe is his best role to date. He is a real person, not singing or playing that slightly off-his-rocker villain character. He's a person, and he becomes more real than I am used to seeing him. This movie was fantastic. This one is well worth finding, renting or buying, and watching more than once. It leaves you smiling with tears. GOOD MOVIE!!!
