Has anyone seen "Frida"? I took it upon myself to rent the movie and watch it the other day. Frida Cahlow's strength and love of life and her art is inspirational, to say the least.

I have never in my life, seen a movie made that way, the color and the depiction of ordinary everyday life was visually mind blowing. It was the first time that I ever "heard" with my eyes, if that makes any sense.

One of my favorite scenes in the movie was the bus accident. I know that may sound a little sick, but, by slowing down the scene where every excruciating detail was observed with an artistic eye was beautiful to me. Especially the end of the scene, when Frida was lying on the floor like a ragdoll, covered in the specks of gold, glass and blood.

The music in the movie was so passionate, angry, and loving at the same time. And Lila Downs' voice sent shivers down my spine, she was just that good.

If anyone is familiar with Frida's works, what's your favorite painting, and why. Or, if anyone could recommend a site or a book with her paintings displayed, let me know.
