    Finally watched this. Bold colors, bittersweet romance. Songs weren't great. Gosling and Stone provided typical quality.

    Will give it a bit more thought. Like the things Jim Cummings is doing production-wise. Another tense, high-strung character with some comedy. Think I liked Wolf of Snow Hollow better.

    Solid doc giving larger geopolitical and timeline overview. Rec reading Sarah Kendzior's "Hiding in Plain Sight" for more about American politics in decline/being corrupted as well as Masha Gessen's "The Man Without A Face" about Putin.
