I took in The Worst Person in the World again (which coincidentally is also something I did literally from 1999 to 2006 #noregrets). The second time around gleaned these thoughts: a. The soundtrack is truly essential and amazing. And I had not realized “Waters of March” was done by Art Garfunkel. b. Andersen Danielsen Lie… Continue reading I took in The Worst Person in the World a second time and found it even more charming

Kimi, Come On!
Kimi’s famous director Steven Soderbergh must have not read David Koepp’s entire screenplay. If he had, he would have seen it was akin to a Lincoln Biography that end with Lincoln went to the theater, then died. Actually, no, but if I told you the ludicrous 15 minute ending of Kimi, then I’d blow my… Continue reading Kimi, Come On!
The Worst Person in the World Got Me out of the Introvert House
The Worst Person in the World is just the ticket for an introvert. Also, a great corpse reviver if you’ve worked on your feet for 6 hours. Put those two bonus points together and you have Roxanne feeling like she could go out at 7:17 pm by herself on a Saturday night. Sure, I went… Continue reading The Worst Person in the World Got Me out of the Introvert House
Marty, Still Relevant After All These Years
Marty, the four time Academy Award winning movie starring Ernest Borgnine holds up 66 years later. Here’s why: People still succumb to peer pressure. Bros before hoes is still a pressure for some boys/men. People fear change and hence, would rather be stuck in a rut and miserable rather than take a chance on rejection/failure.… Continue reading Marty, Still Relevant After All These Years
Hand of God, Bella!
Hand of God, written and directed by Oscar 2022 nominee Paolo Sorrentino, is bella(!), but if you’re not a football/soccer fan, here’s the title explanation. Maradona, one of the greatest soccer players of all time, scored a controversial goal once which was disputed for a hand violation, but then allowed. Later, this was deemed the… Continue reading Hand of God, Bella!
Jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy
One of the blessings of working with young co-workers is that, just like ye olde days of my teaching career, I’m able to be more hip. Vincent, my Saturday comrade between two to four p.m., always hips me to the latest in rap. Because of him, I’ve become a Kanye fan and Tyler the Creator,… Continue reading Jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy
How About a Less Obscure Sundown? Recalculating…
I wish I was Michel Franco’s gal pal who he showed his current Sundown to BEFORE saying, “that’s a wrap”, because I would have gladly said, ‘hey Michel, you gotta be a little more obvious in your target message’. And maybe Michel would have said, ‘hey chica, I’d like it to remain a mystery, a… Continue reading How About a Less Obscure Sundown? Recalculating…
Flee, Moving and Commendable
Immigration seems to be the new school shootings, meaning, most have heard so many stories, both news and renditions (American Dirt and Dreamers just to name one) that to make a documentary about the topic is risky due to public news fatigue. CLARIFICATION: to me, both topics are still VERY important and relevant. Further proof… Continue reading Flee, Moving and Commendable
