bless her indeed. you know, the elderly are a very untapped resource I think. They correct false history alarmingly often, when you take the time to talk to them. I work as a death doula, and those conversations with clients have opened my eyes more than any. It helps to be a professional listener. lol.

She's now on PBS too. Replacing the disgraced Charlie Rose. I wonder if the average Iranian is proud to claim Amampour? I have to admit she's rapturously attractive and compelling in her presentation of absolute no-content swill.
Sad day for PBS. Not that Rose was a beacon of truth or anything lol. I just used to find PBS the only glimmer of reality among US media.
They may have not shown you behind the curtain, but with a well-read eye, watching Frontline, Reveal, POV etc you could at least make out it's outline. Watch it now and it's a low-budget farce of transparent scripted propaganda. Insultingly so. I expect that it's ratings have tanked as anyone stupid enough to accept its programming isn't likely seeking informative and educational options lol
Mostly it's a bevvy of extremely softcore "cultural" pornography seemimgly aimed at middle aged social studies teachers. (Maybe it's just that they were the ones with PBS canvas totes growing up lol) Who, upon sudden reflection, are indeed gatekeepers of democracy. Getting off to some medieval sigh porn.
what a rant. you'll have to excuse

Lolita" by Nabokov takes on a whole new light. As does that Salvador Dalí painting where he called Temple "Americas Little Beast" and put her head on the Sphinx. Dalí knew what was up. My great grandma called Shirley "a sugary little whore" and I always thought she had just been jealous. Guess not!

Two overlooked gems from 2017 that Ive recently seen and can't get out of my head:
"Thoroughbreds" and "Ingrid goes West". They are an excellent double feature. Both explore the psychopathy/narcissm endemic in modern society, and both are considered "black comedies". I find the portrayals within deeply unsettling, brilliant acting jobs (particularly Aubrey Plaza as "Ingrid") I didn't experience these films as comedy at all. I think both films are a kind of litmus test, as I have noticed viewers and critics alike tend to be evenly split on whether theyd just watched a hilarious satire or a satirical thriller. I favor the latter interpretation. Both are writer/director jobs, and both are stunningly adept debuts which deserved way more attention. I particularly think Plaza was robbed of an Oscar nom, and Thoroughbreds is one of the most taught, well-staged 1.5 hours I've seen on screen. The soundtrack is particularly off-beat, almost alarmingly so. Of the two, if I had to chose, I'd go with Thoroughbreds. I have not successfully totally vanquished the disturbing implications of its well-healed from my mind in the two weeks since I've seen it. A must watch for sure. Especially for those hip to truths which constitute the genuine realities of life on Earth.
As for "Ingrid", I can guarantee it is one of tge most wrenching pieces of film to watch, in the way that I found it impossible to remain seated throughout. Everyone that watched with me had the same experience. Be that pleasant or not, it certainly affects deeply.

Why does this headline make me laugh so hard. Onion-esque for sure. I can just image the zany cast that must be the survey respondents still ferociously blind enough to be like, "proud?, No siree, I'm EXTREMELY proud" lol
