I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

Dr.Martin Harris (Liam Neeson) awakens after a car accident in Berlin to discover that his wife suddenly recognize him and another man has assumed his identity. Ignored by disbelieving authorities and hunted by mysterious assassins, he finds himself alone, tired and on the run. Aided by an unlikely ally, Martin plunges headling into a deadly mystery that will force him to question his sanity, his identity, and just how far he's willing to go to uncover the truth.

What's Good about the movie?

Liam's believable performance as Dr. Martin Harris. One can't help but believe that Liam is actually going through this ordeal and he takes us not only on some great high speed chases but on a very emotional roller coaster.

Diane Kruger gives a solid performance as the reluctant and accidental, illegal immigrant side kick to Dr Harris, whose cab he stumbles into.

The plot twist that is revealed close to the end of the movie that I am sure most people won't see coming. The powers that be did a great job in having us believe in what was revealed as the original plot but leaves us gasping and wowing when the truth is revealed.

What's bad about the movie?

January Jones is very stiff-literally and gives a very unconvincing performance as Mrs. Harris. Ms. Jones should have picked up a thing or two from Liam. Suffice it to say I had a hard time connecting to her character and I am sure most people would as well.

I was a bit disappointed that there weren't more action and high octane speed chasing scenes.
Overall Grade: B. It should leave you wondering,what constitutes my identity and who are we without official forms of identification and when our identities are stolen.


According to Steven Gregory Underwood, author of Gay Men and Anal Eroticism, roughly three-fourths of gay men have had anal sex at one time or another throughout their lives. Now, assuming these men continue having anal sex, that leaves a quarter of all gay men that have either never tried or no longer have anal. That's a lot of gay men that aren't into anal sex. Why? There could be a number of reasons:

·         Personal taste. Some guys may have tried anal only to discover that they find no pleasure in topping or bottoming. Those that have never tried anal may continue to have no desire to participate.

·         Stigma. There are stigmas associated with men who have anal sex with other men. The top is often thought to be the dominant partner while the bottom is considered the more submissive. This isn't always true. So, anal sex can pose a problem to, say, a bottom that doesn't want to be seen as or feel like the "weaker" or less dominate man.

·         Anxiety. There are more letters in the STD alphabet soup than any of us would like. The risk of contracting an STD, from the most treatable to the incurable, causes quite a bit of anxiety. Anal sex can be a pathway to many fears, so some feel it's better to abstain than engage.

·         Feelings. Anal penetration is one of our closest physical connections. Many prefer there be feelings associated with that level of closeness. So, some men abstain from anal unless they have an emotional connection with their partner.

Sex is personal. So much so, that preferences, pleasures, desires, wants and needs vary by the individual. Our sexuality, which includes all of the things just mentioned, changes as we experience and grow. What we like today may not be what we're into tomorrow.
