I'm not at all familiar with Heidegger, but I did consider "Thin Red Line" a
very philosophical film. I'd need to watch the movie again, perhaps after
reading some Heidegger.

Looking at a movie in a philosophical light might call for refection on the
"distinction "memes"" Sheriff Brodie talks about in his book on mind bugs. I
tried imposing Berkeleyian and Schopenhauerian ideas upon _The Matrix_
because those distinctions were set up within my mindbrain via some reading
I had done.
I also have noticed more cars like mine since I recently bought it. Yet
another distinction made, thanks to our resident shark chaser.
Before taking botany classes, plants all ran together. After taking botany
classes, I had an unnerving tendency of subconsciously naming all the
familiar plants I happened upon during a walk across campus.
