    OMG! My bad, Chris. I confused Nolan's work with Villeneuve. How stupid. I don't know what I was thinking. Glad you caught it.

    Merry Christmas... still worried about January 6th and these Special Councils he's creating. He's so mean spirited and vengeful. I think he's planning something evil.

    I wish I knew what he plans as even today, at the virus press conference, he still claimed he won and planned on taking office next year. It's December 8th, 34 days after the election, and this is...

    You and I both admire Pauline Kael. As a teen and later as a college student, we ran to the newsstand for the latest New Yorker to read her film reviews. As a writer, I'm certain she felt more akin...

    So I think I was a little more impressed than you were. We did like some of the same parts. The cinematography is gorgeous. Considering all of the controversy with Pauline Kael, I believe the film...

    I was a huge Zappa fan back in the early 1970's and even liked some of his later more commercial stuff like "Dirty Love." Great review, Chris. Look forward to seeing this.

    It's so apparent what he values. He was more interested in the Dow Jones this week than the misery of Americans who are suffering. Disgusting.

    I thought it represented a very good depiction of what happened at the time. They always employ dramatic license and that's to be expected. That Cohen, who is already outspoken, should play Hoffman...
