Primal Fear

Primal Fear: Edward Norton's first real movie

I somehow came up with the idea to pick an actor/actress and then watch all of their movies. Andrew agreed to it, so we spent tonight picking out the actor. We thought about the big guns with lots of movies, like Robin Williams, Tom Hanks, Morgan Freeman... But taking on 50ish movies is a daunting task! So we moved on to young famous people, so they wouldn't have as many films yet - Johnny Depp, Zooey Deschanel (or however her name is spelled). Then we thought about the classics, Audrey Hepburn for example. I mentioned the whole idea to Tara and she immediately came up with Edward Norton. Of course not only because of his great acting, but b/c "he's so hot." ;)

Andrew and I like little Eddie and we like his work, so we're taking it on! We're only doing movies, not tv episode stuff, or whatever else. So we have 22 movies to watch. The first one he's listed in is called Only In America which was done in 1994 when he was 25. He looks younger than 25 to me!

I tried to find this Only in America movie, and found out it's actually an ESL educations teaching thing! I guess there's 8 sections and EN is in 5 of those 8 sections. I guess one of the sections had to show how truly nerdy Americans are

Besides the fact that it's an educational training video, it also costs $140 for the 2 cassette pack, so we're not going to be watching Only In America.

Which means we start with Primal Fear, 1996. Andrew and I are just discovering Netflix, and this movie is actually available for instan steaming, so we will probably watch it tomorrow. I'm excited for our little Edward adventure!
