    Kolya, a Czech film from 1996. Lots of emotion, but it doesn't come cheap.

    "So This is Paris", an excellent silent comedy.

    I wonder how many people will see that movie not knowing it is a Sopranos prequel.

    I watched the show religiously when it was on, but now I'm not really sure how well it holds up. I've watched a handful of episodes and a bunch of clips recently and wasn't as impressed as I've been when I re-watched other old shows I watched in their original runs. I'm not sure why. The lead character being, ultimately, an unlikeable, murderous sociopath with secondary characters even worse than him is part of it. Six seasons of Tony Soprano and co. might have been too many.

    Official Secrets, the story of whistleblower Katherine Gun, who leaked a memo exposing a directive for British and American agents to surveil members of the UN Security Council. It's on Netflix. One of the reporters carries an overflowing notebook.

    The director of the film wrote notes in a notebook when he talked with Ms. gun. The Washington Post relates Ms. Gun describing the director's notebook as a "vast, leather-bound notebook that just grew and grew" as he took notes over five days.

    Not a fan of mobster movies, I watched Newark never having seen a Sopranos episode. My husband (a dedicated fan of all things Soprano) had to clue me in from time to time. There was no actor from the original series in it, but most of the characters were there. All the period sets, etc. were great, the occasional violence was abrupt and nasty. I saw no sign of the future sociopath in the young and likable Tony Soprano.

    That said, I enjoyed it enough to watch the first couple Sopranos episodes. I have to say the dark humor is the only part I really enjoyed, having never seen that done in a mafia movie before. Yep. Self involved sociopaths on parade.

    I felt like watching a Robin Williams movie and "What Dreams May Come" popped up on my Netflix feed. It had been a while since I watched it and never noticed until now that a Parker 61 shows up in it.

    Harvard Beats Yale 29-29.

    A conventional but still interesting and entertaining documentary on the 1968 football game between the two schools. Yale had one of the best teams in the country that year and were clearly the superior team but, as they say, stuff happens. The game, including the amazing final minutes, is covered thoroughly with extensive highlights. Not surprisingly, there is also discussion of what was going on in the USA and the world in that troubled year. Tommy Lee Jones was an offensive lineman on the Harvard team and is one of the talking heads in the movie.

    Weathering With You, a recent anime feature set in the present or near future, centered around a young love.



    The metaphysics are a bit scrambled, often the case with such films, but the artwork is top-notch with skyscapes that recall Miyazaki's films.

    Dune (2021). I loved the book as a kid, but thought the David Lynch attempt (1984) was so-so. The new one is better, but the story is really to convoluted (IMO) to work well as a movie.

    I might re-read the novel before seeing the film, to brush up.

    Blow-Up.

    It is possible to enjoy and admire a movie without fully understanding it.

    Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1966 film is generally considered to be a masterpiece. The back of the Criterion Collection box says it is “about the act of seeing and the art of image making.” Okay. I certainly found it beautiful to look at.

    'It is possible to enjoy and admire a movie without fully understanding it.'

    That was my hope when I saw 2001 Space Odessey when it first came out in 1968, and I'm still trying to; a, understand the end of it; and b, like it.

    H.A.L. scared the be-jeepers out of me!

    I saw a documentary, Akeji, the Breath of the Mountain about a Japanese artist, Akeji.
    Very mediative and relaxing.

    What I found most interesting was at one stage, the artist removes Cicadas exoskeletons from branches, crushes them, adds some water and then paints/writes with the ink...

    You need to read this book since you found how he made ink and paint interesting.
