We never darken the door of a commercial movie house, we just stream
'em from Netflix, or Amazon Prime, or Acorn. So no "New Releases"
here...but we watched a couple of good ones in the last week or so and
they come highly recommended from a couple of old movie buffs.
"The Last Movie Star" stars,
of all people, Burt Reynolds.......and he's remarkably good, as is the
rest of the cast. Plot: Burt, a long over-the-hill movie star is
invited to a film festival featuring his list of movies (as the
character not as Burt). It is a very low-budget-affair, which he has
become as well, and he is insulted and furious about it.....and, well THAT is
the thematic material for a very good story. It's on NetFlix & Amazon and really
worth a look.
"Their Finest" is a WW II Brit movie about making a movie. Really well done and recent (2017) from NetFlix.
Check out "Drop Dead Diva".
The premise is one that has been done before....a sort of switching
places thing where beautiful super model suddenly inhabits the body of
short, fat, genius lawyer...ho-hum you say? Well, so far themes have
included body image and our societies prejudices about this, breast
cancer, legal ethics, murder.....well, it ran for 6 seasons and we've
only seen season 1 so far. It is funny, emotionally honest and topical.
We started to watch "The Florida Project"
but decided it was too depressing to finish. Looked up the 'review" and
skipped to the end and sure enough, it was. BUT! Did find a winner on
Netflix on DVD, it's "Jimmy's Hall" the (true) story of Jimmy Gralton,
called a "firebrand Irishman", he was the only citizen of Ireland ever
deported to the U.S. It's a good story and very well done.

there comes a time when counting the cost and paying the price aren't
things to think about any more. All that matters is value- the ultimate
value of what one does." James Hilton
will have gone out of us as a people if we ever let the remaining
wilderness be destroyed ... We need wilderness preserved — as much of
it as is still left, and as many kinds — because it was the challenge
against which our character as a people was formed ... We simply need
that wild country available to us, even if we never do more than drive
to its edge and look in. For it can be a means of reassuring ourselves
of our sanity as creatures, a part of the geography of hope." Stegner

came up with two concepts that are commonplace to us today: one is
"subjectivity," the idea that we all perceive the world — and "truth" —
differently; and the other is the "leap of faith," that faith is not
possible without doubt. “One must doubt the existence of God to have
faith in the existence of God. Belief without doubt is just credulity.”
Novelist and essayist David Foster Wallace
said: "Postmodern irony and cynicism's become an end in itself, a
measure of hip sophistication and literary savvy. Few artists dare to
try to talk about ways of working toward redeeming what's wrong,
because they'll look sentimental and naive to all the weary ironists.
Irony's gone from liberating to enslaving.”
Ben Okri author of, The Famished Road
(1991), incorporates African myth and folklore, which has been labeled
magical realism. Okri disagrees: "I grew up in a tradition where there
are simply more dimensions to reality: legends and myths and ancestors
and spirits and death. You can't use Jane Austen to speak about African
reality. Which brings the question: what is reality? Everyone's reality
"Be yourself; everyone else is taken."
