I saw a number of movies in the past two days: Pumpkin, 200 Motels, Happiness, and Elling. Of these, I'd say my favorites were Happiness - which I'm sure many of you have seen - and Elling, a hilarious Norwegian film with a wonderful optimism reminiscent of Amelie. Pumpkin was enjoyable also, and 200 Motels was just straight-up insane.

Smashing idea. Just smashing.
