watch the british "up series." trust me. it's amazing.
think about what you wanted to be as a child. then think about everything that happened to you between ages 7 and 14. 14 and 21. 21 and 28. 28 and 35. 35 and 42. 42 and 49. how did the events that took place change how you thought life would be? how did things not change? what kind of person did you become because of other people or happenings? this films real people going through this process with the benefit of actually being able to look at themselves in a concrete way and compare what used to be to what is now.
