    The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley

    ★★½

    Doc was too interested in the “what” and not enough in the “why.” I would have liked to see more from Dan Ariely and the behavioral science behind why people in Silicon Valley are compelled to lie, cheat, and cover-up to get ahead.

    Free Solo

    ★★★★

    I’m both disappointed and relieved that I didn’t see this on the big screen. An appropriate subtitle would be “Enjoy Your Sweaty Palms.”

    I also appreciated that the filmmakers didn’t comment on Alex’s personal life and just let us observe. His fractious relationship with his girlfriend for instance - it was left up to the viewer to decide if he’s just a selfish person or purposely keeping her at a distance to avoid letting his care for her affect his mindset during the climb.

    I didn’t remember it being so long. And feeling even longer.

    Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

    ★★½

    I'm one of the few who believes that Attack of the Clones is better than everyone says and Revenge of the Sith is worse than everyone says. To be clear, neither are good movies.
