Movie – Never Look Away

As is my habit I skim something about a movie and if I think there is a chance I will like it I go. As was the case with Never Look Away. I arrived early at the Paris theatre across from the Plaza Hotel and selected seats in the balcony just behind and to the […]

Movie THEY SHALL NOT GO HOME

An overwhelming documentary about the British fighting in WWI. The filmmaker voiced over original film from the Imperial War Museum archives What a great job. At times I felt I was there, or was heartbroken that these little boys where there. For old men’s insecurities and irrational fears. Ending with a few of the storytellers […]

The Sister’s Brothers

And Hudson Market bear the Landmark on 57th. Another MoviePass. Adventure The market looks great. A few food bars, a few made to order counters, and fresh looking veggies.

Puzzle was pretty slow going at times, hard to watch at others, as the story is so familiar. And the New York Times seems […]
