    The Year of Living Dangerously

    ★★★½

    35th Anniversary of the Australian release of The Year of Living Dangerously today. I have never seen this film before today. It wouldn't be released in the U.S. until February of '83.

Listen, I got a TON of nostalgia for this film since it was endlessly on HBO it seems. And this film is just some good old fashioned family fun! Kurt and Goldie teamed up in this super fun comedy that was directed by the late Garry Marshall and I don't think that I ever did a tribute…
