    Taxi to the Dark Side

    ★★★★

    We and this film remember what the USA did to innocent brown Middle Eastern men (and women and children) at Gitmo and Abu Ghraib and Bagram. And if you're protesting the police being trigger-happy with blacks, if you think Trump is the most terrible president ever, and if you're outraged by brown Latin American kids in cages, then spend some time being absolutely nauseated by what George W. Bush and his "war on terror" did to America--and to the lives of countless innocent Middle Eastern men and their families.

    Super Size Me

    ★★★

    If you search for this film as "Supersize me" in the database, you won't find it. You have to search for "Super Size Me." Who spells it that way?

    The Danish Girl

    ★★★★★

    Given the controversy surrounding The Danish Girl I took the opportunity to watch it again, this time with some LGBT friends. They were spellbound. The younger members of the party were astonished to see what prospects awaited a 1920s Caitlyn Jenner: mental wards, straightjackets, radiation treatment, and perhaps even lobotomy. Once again the experience was transformative.
