    The only film l can think of that I actually consider escapist. A warm bath world where everyone acts a way I think is normal. Top 10.

    This is a very nice documentary that also features the story of Judy Blume’s dad’s last words “Oh shit, oh shit, what terrible timing,” which will be slowly ricocheting around my brain like a screensaver until I fall asleep.

    Unfortunately, 25 minutes into this film, I took a sip of my drink and realized I had in fact just taken a sip from a stranger’s seated next to me. My blood vessels froze and I sat there thinking about that for the rest of the film.

    Will revisit this film A.S.A.P. and draft a more clearheaded review post-haste. 

    He knew, I think.

    Every time it flashed back 10 years it knocked me out all over again. Ten years of texts from this guy to arrive at this show. Excited to tell all of you there is an anxious, empathetic comedy docuseries that moves The Act Of Killing to Florida. 

    I’m truly awed by Woliner’s curiosity. Would that any of us had an ounce of this kind of (regularly tested) patience with each other.
