Sacral Chakra - Movies to Cry by
Jamie recently posted her list of films to let the tears out by. This reminded me, as well as reading in True Balance about the sacral chakra that of the things I learned in a film class, is about different types of film. On type is classified as being focused on emotional effect or mood. With this it includes romance, comedies as well as horror films*. Its interesting that these are all in essence, the same emotions involved with the sacral chakra. Who would have thought? I will most likely do a scare-fest film list, but I think I will leave that closer to Halloween.
This is ranges from straight out cry-fest to some slightly odder choices, but all have them have touched me in some way. I may not have cried in all of them, and some more than others, but they are all good when you need a few hours of emotional release, so put the kettle on and have the kleenex handy.
