127 Hours

Just finished watching 127 Hours.  I don't know what I feel.  I have broken my bones and I know how much it hurts.  That night, after I fell off my bike I tried to get up, but I couldn't.  So I lay back on the road expecting someone would come to help me.  A very generous person stopped his car and asked "Are you okay?"  I didn't think for a split second before shouting back "No!"  He literally carried me to the side of the road where we made a couple phone calls to my friends.  He carried me again to his car and I was almost fainting in pain because I couldn't rest my broken leg on the car seat.  We went to a nearby hospital.  I had to climb up to the first floor via staircases and I simply refused.  He was annoyed a bit, but he nevertheless carried me to the hospital climbing the stairs.  I held my pants to support the broken leg, but every single jerk felt like electric shock all over my body.  I know what a fracture and pain can do to you.  Such a pain can easily stop your brain from thinking.  I know I should have asked the guy to send me to a good hospital.  I must not have stressed my leg so much.  But I just couldn't think anything.  Heck, I didn't even know what was happening to my leg.

In the movie, Aaron starts by breaking his bone!  When I saw him do it I could feel the pain and I almost screamed.  I guess cutting your own body is one of the worst tortures you can do to yourself.  I don't know what I think about it right now, but I have a feeling that this movie is going to be disturbing me for some time.

I thought of trying out the book too, but they don't have a Kindle version :(
