    Honest Man: The Life of R. Budd Dwyer

    ★★★★

    I've been very intrigued by the R. Budd Dwyer case recently: a beloved Pennsylvanian politician commits suicide on live television after being accused of accepting a bribe and is most likely completely innocent of the crime.

    Parasite

    ★★★★★

    Alright, time for the second movie of the day. While I may not have fallen in love with Parasite as much as everyone else has, I still can't find a flaw in this incredibly well-made movie. It's an intriguing study of class that somehow seamlessly switches tones about halfway through the movie but that is engaging all the way through. I can't necessarily speak as to how well the nuances of the written dialogue and line deliveries were executed since…
