    Yes, New Mexico is a special place. It’s not called the Land of Enchantment for nothing. It truly is mystical, for lack of a better word to describe what it does to you. I always found it peculiar that they chose New Mexico, of all places, as Ground Zero for their research on building the weapon of all weapons. To me, such an act was worse than sacrilegious, metaphorically speaking. Who knows, maybe they were tapping into some portal that gives New Mexico its mystical and enchanting appeal.

    Anyhow, for those who haven’t  seen this movie, the setting is New Mexico, and it’s an excellent film with wonderful scenery shots. It conjures the mysticism and magic of New Mexico, besides being a wonderful, if not unconventional story. It’s called Off The Map. Watch it, if you haven’t. You won’t be disappointed.
