    Veneciafrenia

    ★★★

    Didn't know anything about Veneciafrenia, but a friend who is a big Iglesia fan was visiting the area, and it happens to be playing at the AMC just about 10 minutes from where I live.

    I'll keep this short. I liked it a lot.

    But...

    Great first two acts. Iglesia really nailed the giallo vibe more so than any contemporary take on the genre (especially the over-wrought Suspiria remake). Gialli can be a silly genre, and he did an amazing…

    Amazing that this is the first movie I've seen since July 1st. Might be the longest I've gone in decades. Trying to be more active and less passive in life. So, my viewing habits lately are cooking/food shows and tubes.

    What is interesting is that the…

    I'm not an expert by any means, but I have spent a lot of time reading books, blogs, articles, listening to podcasts and watching documentaries on the subject of nutritional health.

    In my late teens, I was macrobiotic briefly, and then vegetarian for nearly 10 years. In my late 30s, I was Paleo for around 4 years. I don't consider myself paleo now, but I do focus on a "whole foods" diet that is extremely minimal in grains, entirely free…
