    A Private War

    Re-visited this recently (currently on Netflix in the US) and it remains a really powerful portrait of Marie Colvin, an American reporter, who gave up everything (sanity, safety and eventually life) to authentically document the horrors of war. She had the gift, the guts & the gumption to actually make a difference, to convey the brutal reality of these conflicts to those outside of the chaos. Fueled by duty-bound obligation, empathy and addiction, she placed herself in the midst of imminent…

    Joker

    I am flabbergasted that Joker is the movie that's been the focus of such intense, and seemingly endless, discourse over the past x number of months. that movie? really? REALLY. It's so blah & infuriatingly mediocre that I've already forgotten it & I *just* finished it. why can't we argue over something more fun & interesting next time? There was just nothing here worthy of discussion. It's not complex. It's not smart. It's not insightful. It wasn't even able to keep my attention…
