“I was really hooked on movies at a very young age. The Manchurian Candidate (1962), along with Seven Days in May (1964), Fail-Safe (1964) and Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964) were this quartet of anarchistic black-and-white American movies, each of which did things that you just didn’t do in American movies, especially in the realm of irreverence toward politics and government institutions and the Army. I was what, 16, it was shocking, it was thrilling and, interestingly, it predated my exposure to the French New Wave so, in a way, this was the American, a certain kind of new wave in American movies.” – Jonathan Demme

Let us wait and see what kind of ride this tale out of some story teller’s crazy mind will take us. ‘Fasten your seat belts – it’s going to be a bumpy night [I prefer ‘ride’].’ Leave it to All About Eve to give us the perfect line.  –  j.kiley

“Take Your Broken Heart….”

In a world that has felt crazy and out of control for a while now, it is a true delight to know that there are women in the world like the radiant Viola Davis and the incomparable Meryl Streep. Their words from this year’s Golden Globe Awards are both touching and eloquent. Faced with the reality into which we are all about to be plunged, Meryl Streep’s words resonate profoundly.

Disappointment Is Less Than What I Feel

Heavy thoughts from Maggie the Cat

'maggie the cat' ‘maggie the cat’ I had a complete meltdown on Wednesday. The world felt like it had become alien. All hope had left the room. Left the Universe. If there is a reason this is happening like the election was rigged, not by the Democrats, I feel it was all a set up by the other side in Hell. He worked it out perfectly, except I am not certain he even wanted the responsibility of the 3am wake up calls. But then he may just be entering Hell by winning the electoral vote. He thinks life was rough with his Dad, he now has hit the mother load of being accountable. Many Special Prosecutors need to examine him in minute detail, with every law he has broken. The Sexual Assault cases are a great place to start. Follow those cases by investigating the rip off of students who enrolled in his…
