that I just bought a copy. Extremely good beginner pilates explanation with step-by-step program included. lots of pictures and suggested modifications. Spiral bound and in large format, with an easel cover, so it can be propped on a tabletop and viewed while practicing. Highly recommended.
Up front, I want you to know that I am a big fan of all things time travel. This is one of the most intriguing time travel films I have ever seen. I plan to watch it again at least once before I return it or possibly to buy it. It is just an astonishing piece of plotting and performance. Since the production style is one in which the actors sometimes talk over each other, and in general talk as if talking only to each other in small rooms (realistically instead of theatrically), I suggest considering turning on the subtitles if you have any trouble hearing or separating the dialog.
While this is an interesting book of acrobatic feats, it is not in any way yoga. I suspect some of the pieces were augmented with some image manipulation, and the titles of some of the pieces are punny or snarky. So, if you are looking for a little light, mildly voyeuristic entertainment, this fits the bill. If you're looking for yoga, keep on looking.
It's not the same story as the short it is based on, not by a long shot. But the screenplay takes some of the ideas in the story and runs away with it. I could recognize it was not really a Dick story while I was watching it, but I didn't mind. It's a very nice romance with some big ideas and a lot of great New York locations. Damon and Blunt have some lovely chemistry.
The amazing animation enhances the paranoia of the characters. This film is the best representation of Philip K. Dick's pervasive gonzo absurdity that I have ever seen. It is as mind-bending as Inception and brilliantly executed with very interesting bonus features.
