It’s tough to write a top ten list when many of this year’s great films have yet to come to Sarasota. The Post, Call Me By Your Name and three of the four Foreign Film noms no where to be seen here. Hey, I’m not complaining, I’d rather wait on a movie than wait for… Continue reading My Top Ten of 2017 (revised to include The Shape Of Water!)
What a gift my Christmas Day was! I got to spend an hour or two ONE ON ONE with my Grandma, amazing, my Dad (in hospital, but hopefully out Wednesday), and my Mom (for my second viewing of The Greatest Showman).

Need I go on? I was even willing to go solo… Continue reading “The Square”, Way Outside the Box
