NOBODY expects the Billy Crystal Six-Pack!!!
Serious Aside: I love Crystal and Hines (and a really good supporting cast!) in RUNNING SCARED very much, also it’s exhibit A in how normalized the idea was by the mid 80s that police brutality and abuse of power was not only necessary but self-evidently good.
Crystal/Hines was the best of the 80s buddy cop duos is my strongly held opinion. It’s conceivable that if it had been a big hit those two might have had much different careers.

Again, Republicans are a genocide party, and they very much believe in "cancel culture."
Republicans believe in "cancel culture." What they object to is "criticism culture."

They don't want scrutiny. They want silence.
They don't want dialogue. They want obedience.
They don't want democracy. They want authority.

They'll use every tool available to them to get it.
Whenever Republicans talk about "cancel culture," they never mean the violence committed against a man, pushed out of a park for the color of his skin.

They always mean the social consequences that might befall the racist supremacist doing the pushing.

A ROOM WITH A VIEW is, in my opinion, good. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
(And I’m very relieved to report it or @BCDreyer may have treated me like cousin Charlotte.)
This is clearly a movie with a high rewatchabilty quotient. An plethora of precisely calibrated perfect little moments.

Also I want that house.

Conservatism is a religion. Unfortunately the faithful's glazed globby God spent the last year telling them that Covid is a hoax that will simply go away someday, and that all attempts to combat it with science are acts of apostasy against His Greatness.…
Something in the white church in America sure does teach people that anything they do is moral as long as it springs from a deeply held conviction—as if the most horrendous acts of human atrocity weren't carried out by people with deep convictions.
Very tired of having people's beliefs reported or discussed t as if the simple fact of holding a belief lends it credibility or relevance.

"Yes but *they* also sincerely believe *we're* wrong."

So what? Of course they do. They're still wrong.

I mean the problem for "Far Left" is, to have something that would be 'far' left in the way that our current mainstream conservative media ecosystem is 'far' right, you'd need literally a Soviet-era Communist Party newspaper, cable show, radio, blog, podcast media superstructure.
We'd need to have had a president who was literally a totalitarian Maoist proto-dictator, and a top-rated cable news network that enthusiastically acted as his propaganda networks, with an entire host of even more sycophantic and slavish alternative options for his followers.
Far Left: Hey what if nobody starved or had to sleep outside.

Far Right: This is the list of subhuman races who are an abomination against our holy creator.

We should all make it our priority to insult white nationalist neo-Nazi Stephen Miller at every depth and on every level without cease for the rest of his life.
Joseph Goebbels would like it known the things people are writing and saying about him really hurt his fee-fees.
My vision board for Stephen Miller involves him getting apprehended wearing a false mustache and attempting to board a plane to a country without extradition treaties.

After some contemplation, JOJO RABBIT is, in my opinion, half-bad. ⭐️⭐️½
The topic of indoctrination is a timely one, and a comic approach is a valid way to get at it. In the end, though, it lands in an place of absolution that feels wrong. It's very well-made, but ultimately it's allowed to be too comfortable.
You can have "Wes Anderson's Diary of Anne Frank" if you want to, but only if the whimsy is in service of blindsiding an unsuspecting audience with the truth that unawareness doesn't equate to innocence, which is a great horror of mass atrocity.
