She walks into a room, the wrong room; it's a room full of women doing deep relaxation exercises. Julia quietly walks out. Her quest is not a feminist one. So what is the point of Julia's journey? Updates about the Iraqi War stream from televisions and radios throughout "Room", which Julia(like you and me) converts largely into background noise, offers a tantalyzing clue to understanding the nature of this woman's vision. Julia, like President Bush, of course, is from Texas. If she's a conservative, maybe the filmmaker is saying that the room doesn't exist, just like how Bush's Iraq doesn't exist. The room is a lie. Julia's journey to New York might be a metaphor for the deployment of our soldiers in Iraq. If your state of mind is a political one, "Room" will seem engrossing rather than mind-numbing. Expand
