"I deem a movie to be worthwhile if I need time to recover after seeing it. Million Dollar Baby is such a film. It does not easily release the viewer, and it demands a time of reflection and contemplation afterwards. It is a rich and challenging motion picture that both affirms life and emphasizes its fragility." -- James Berardinelli. I've only ever seen the movie thrice. I think? Once in 2005 and a little afterwards. It just...hit hard. I needed time to recuperate from something that powerful. Saw it again just now. I might need another 10 years to recover.
