I was just watching something with Keith Carradine when I heard about Ms Harris.  Altman cast everyone perfectly, though Carradine didn't think so at first.  He hated his character, then realized that's why Altman chose him, because he wanted "Tom" to be somewhat self-loathing.

Smitty, what up?

I've seen "baby driver" like 50 times now because it's always on SHO, don't pay for HBO or Max for whatever reason, $$, been watching "Get Shorty" the tv series, which is acually better than the movie, darker, and more true to what I thought EL would have envisioned.

Elmore Leonard test:  Who does it best?  Soderbergh, Tarantino, whoever did GS, or the the Peter Weller one, "cat chaser" I think.

Soderbergh, for Out of Sight.  With Jackie Brown and 310 to Yuma maybe a close second/third. (Taratino and Mangold, respectively)

We have one of the best film schools in the world here in the O.C., Dodge College at Chapman University. Here is a link for a page with some student films on it...

I need to get some new headshots made, and I want to submit to act in student films here locally. 

Salute,

Black Klansman is pretty good.   It's darkly comic but also disturbing because the major roles are real people.   A good reminder of how human desire to be "in the club" and find love and camaraderie can take people to bad places.   Lee isn't coy about what he wants to say about right now in America.   But maybe he doesn't really need the coda with Charlottesville footage.   He's already allowed the viewers to make the connection.  He doesn't need to be Michael Moore.

"Crazy Rich Asian" was colorful and interesting. Not up to the to rom-com standard of "My Big Greek Fat Wedding", but a fun watch.

As ethnic movies go, not as self-consciously Jewish as a Woody Allen movie, but as Asian rom-com goes it nailed all the low hanging stereotype fruit...[cough]...

Banana is the Asian metaphor equivalent to Oreo.   Some good jokes,  lots of trite but fun stuff,  and Singapore has great sky candy.  I heart Gemma Chan,  who plays a sister.   She's also great in the UK science fiction series "Humans. "

When I saw Wind River last year,  I recalled Thunderheart having some similar theme elements and wondered if I wanted to see it again.   Both movies,  as is the case with almost all NA themed films,  have Graham Greene in the cast.   Might have a look.

We're going crazy out there at the lake.

Just rewatched season two of "Fargo, " which is the best season of the three so far,  and so artfully captures the spirit of the original film.
