I’m watching the Farrow vs Allen doc now, and what is so different about it is that it actually directly addresses the art versus artist question. That’s genius, because normally these kind of stories avoid that whole element, and that leaves the audience a bit lost. I think we need to talk about art versus artist more, come up with more tools for ourselves to handle that question.Continue reading
Huh! This trailer is not at all what I predicted and the film looks like it might be far better than expected, in terms of performances, imagination, and topic. Yaaay! I love good movies!Continue reading

Oh dear. I know this is a movie that a lot of you really like. And I’m sorry, but I just don’t.

This is a very long post with a lot of big thoughts and some specific examples but even if you don’t read the whole post, you should read this new rule I am instituting for #MeToo related comments: IF YOU ARE COMMENTING HERE ABOUT A #METOO STORY, YOU MUST INCLUDE A LINK BACK TO THE ORIGINAL DETAILED REPORT, OR SUMMARIZE IT FOR US. YOU CANNOT SIMPLY GIVE A NAME WITH NO CONTEXT. If you forget, I will find the link and summarize it in a reply. But I’ll only do that three times before I start just not printing your comments, so please try to remember.
Still no big big exciting stories, but some interesting things today, worthy of discussion. Some more than others, but all worth reporting.
