Today Dru and I saw ‘The Number 23’, an extremely kick-ass film starring Jim Carrey.
I won’t spoil it, but the synopsis is that it is about a guy who become increasingly obsessed with the number 23 after reading a book entitled ‘The Number 23’. It’s very good. The film is full of occurrences of the number throughout, some extremely subtle, some not. It great how it leaves them out there so you can find them, until you start hunting for them and seeing them everywhere – even in ways that were no doubt not intentional. The human mind is a wonderful thing, allowing you to play games with it like that.
We spent the trip back from the cinema pointing out occurrences of the number in license plates, phone numbers, bus signs and various other things.
Damn that movie was cool.
