It is always strange to go back and read the critics reviews of a film, after I have seen it for the first time. While many critics I admire loathed this clever, somewhat atmospheric crime thriller, I actually thought it was a great deal of fun. Most positive and negative reviews have noted (with praise) Vincent D'Onofrio's scene-chewing work as the Meth dealer Pooh Bear, but I actually thought the entirety of D.J. Caruso's freshman effort as helmsman was very decent. Many critics derided the milieu of the film -- set amongst the seedy world of SoCal Gack addicts and dealiers -- as unredeeming. I however thought the lighting and photography, in particular the loving way L.A. is photographed ((500) Days of Summer, anybody) stood in ironic contrast to the truly seedy setting and made for an effective artistic technique. The moral center(s) of the film is/are Val Kilmer's character, who may or may not be the seediest of them all, and Peter Sarsgaard's fabulous heel follower. The two partners in addiction and crime develop what has to be one of the more touching bromances-set-in-a-drug-underworld I've seen in many a moon. Perhaps this was pre-Breaking Bad, and so the the apparent offensiveness of the material stood out more. I don't know. I liked it, and it looks great in HD on Amazon Prime.

I, too, really appreciated this film, as well as Val Kilmer's performance.

Great, just like Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, and Breitbart censor the news. And the way that the Bush Administration forgot to tell us that they knew there were no bombs in Iraq.

Keep on voting Republican. This is what you have to look forward to. News that is censored to favor them.

In a land where Freedom of Speech is widely celebrated
One political party is committed to using that Freedom

To Lie

And they do forbid others to speak freely, because they are terrified of the Truth.

The Repelican Party must fall.
Great will be the fall of it.

What an excellent commentary on the issue of #race  in the U.S. This reflects exactly my attitude, that it is very clearly not a "black and white" (to coin a phrase) issue, but one with many, many shades of color.

The President 's and 1st Lady's experiences are  a centuries old struggle against oppression and biases. These very same biases are institutionalized and part of American society, and endured by many black Americans as every day life. These experiences are NOT mere perceptions that may be construed. They know exactly what they hear, see and feel without question.

This is what newspapers are supposed to do. Stir things up. I would not be surprised if the +Los Angeles Times wins another Pulitzer for this series. Great going!

In honor of the late, great #MikeNichols  I decided to watch this, what is considered to be one of his lesser efforts. I had never seen this "Carrie Fischer pseudo-autobiography" (is it, or isn't it?) and was pleasantly surprised. It isn't great Mike Nichols, but even second-rate Nichols is good cinema. What makes it, really, is the story, which is  no-nonsense self-appraisal by one of Hollywood's instant Star Wars stars. And, of course the superior performances by MacLaine and Streep. Especially Streep - was she ever that young? Not to say she hasn't aged extremely well, but what was she 20 when she made this? If you are patient, and can wait until the end, you get to see Streep as Carrie Fischer singing her heart out on a soundstage. And doing it quite well.

Great behind the scenes on Hollywood and Fisher at that time. This and S.O.B. would make a great double feature on the gossip of Tinseltown. Poor Carrie tho, lol.

I saw this nifty thriller on Amazon and, even though I rented it years ago (on VHS, probably) recalled enjoying it, so watched it again. A treat, really, from the superb acting by the very young principals, Glenn Close and Jeff Bridges to the great supporting cast. The real winner here, though, is the San Francisco Bay Area scenery, as it is in Hitchcock's "Vertigo". The beautiful City Hall building, and the rugged NorCal coastline. Well written by Joe Eszterhas, oh he of "Basic Instinct" fame. Good stuff!

An outstanding #AltRock LP from the 80s. I understand Paul Westerberg was not the easiest guy to get a long with, but wow, listening to this minor masterpiece I am reminded of the moment(s) of genius that was #TheReplacements.

Just as a note, I looked through a selection of comments on the NYT site. It is interesting to me that some commentators simply point to another media source as a refutation of Krugman's carefully framed (and supported) argument. And, further interesting that many continue to use their particular (and narrow) experiences as evidence of the Law's failure, rather than looking at the actual data. A particular shortcoming of many conservatives who simply oppose anything this Democrat president does.

I have only had good experience with Bob Smith, although I had heard some negative things. My only complaint is that they fired the service advisor that I was using before (some weird conflict with a customer, was all they told me). Every time I come here the whole experience is as expected: they answer the phone, schedule an appointment; when I show up they have my appointment in the system; my service advisor is available (although sometimes I have to wait); he is friendly, knowledgaable; they estimate the amount and time of repairs; they get me a loaner (sometimes an actual Bimmer, which is a treat - today I got to drive a new 2013 328 -sweet); and they call me for authorization of any additional repairs; and, they have always had my car ready when they said they would - or, if not, they have a reasonable explanation. What more could you want? Yes, they are pricey, but you pay more in LA, especially because the taxes are more. Steve Thomas is less expensive, but if I can get decent service here, why drive so far?

I don't know what the other guy is talking about. They tell you up front that you will have to pay for the visit, if they do not end up doing the repair - that is pretty standard for repair outfits - why would they send someone out just to use their expertise to tell you what is wrong, so, if you don't like their estimate, you can have someone else do it. I called these guys, they sent someone out promptly, he told me what he would be doing, then found out that the part he thought would need to be replaced did NOT need to be replaced (the drain pump on my washer was clogged, not brokent), They SAVED ME $106 (or whatever the price would have been without their markup - if you can find the part yourself, and repair it yourself, why did you call a repair outfit in the first place?). So, exactly the opposite experience.
