    Capernaum

    ★★★★½

    I watched two impressive films today. Bad Boy Bubby and Capernaum.

    They truly couldn’t be more different films, one being fantasy and the other realistic, but the common theme of a deprived and tragic childhood shone through.

    Capernaum is in effect a realistic take on poverty in an abusive cultural society and its impact on a child. Where Bad Boy Bubby is an extreme example of criminal abuse, deprivation and degradation of a child. The great difference, for Bubby, was…

    ★★★★★

    I love the thought of a director waking up one morning with the intention of making a movie about how beautiful family relationships can be. In this film no one uses a mobile phone, iPads or watches TV. Everyone walks and patiently waits for buses and siblings communicate in a respectful and loving way. No one talks politics, watches the news or scrolls social media. The siblings are not selfish but giving. School is welcoming and students friendly. Money is…

    Bully. Coward. Victim. The Story of Roy Cohn

    When I found out Roy Cohen was in part responsible for the rise of Donald Trump, he really reached god-tier villain status.

    D.B. Cooper: Where Are You?!

    ★★½

    If you are entering the world of D.B. Cooper for the first time then you might be surprised, as I was to realise how much people are willing to throw their time, energy and talents into solving mysteries that don't need to be solved.

    I can't believe how bad this movie is. I was expecting something either fun or deep. This was neither. It's only saving grace is that it is solid middle class and didn't bring in the rich/ poor mean girl dynamic like most 2000 era school movies. If this is representative of USA school life at the time, I feel sorry for those who had to experience it. A bunch of degenerate bullying and sexual predators.

    What a family! What a school! Just imagine if her sister supported her to stay Vegetarian.

    I am officially disturbed. I came into this a little unprepared, but after nearly gagging three times at various scenes, I still couldn't help but watch and enjoy this film. It is captivating, fascinating, enjoyable and sickening all in one.
