As anyone who has been around this list for a while knows, I have a
real fascination with the emotional bonds people create with inanimate
objects. I am particularly curious about objects as the target of
intimacy. I just saw "Lars and the Real Girl", a movie released in
2007, that I somehow missed up to this point. This movie was
absolutely fascinating on this point, and I would encourage anyone who
shares my interests in the human psyche to watch it.

I am not ashamed to admit that this movie actually moved me nearly to
tears in several places. I suspect that I am not alone in this, and
that this was part of the effect the creator of the movie wished to
create. Absolutely fascinating!
