the mourning Morning Show Thursday, Nov 25 2021 

I thought the acting in “scenes from a marriage” was almost too painful to watch -but I must say the last 2 episodes of the “Morning Show” were definitely of that character. It hit really close to home. The death of the past announcer felt like a death in the family. Jennifer Aniston is very skilled at drawing the viewer in to her problems and I mean the last episode with Aniston’s character talking directly to the audience roasting from a fever that was Covid 19 – well, it left me speechless. Not too many shows are focusing on the Pandemic – but this one really dealt with it most effectively.

I love Billy Crystal…. But we all are getting on in years. There are lots of laugh out loud moments in this film about the memory loss of a comedy writer. Tiffany Haddish deserves a shout out as the person who agrees to be his caregiver and she is a breath of fresh air. Tune in , you will be glad you did.

The Guilty Thursday, Oct 7 2021 

Jake Gyllenhaal – part of a gifted acting family – deserves an Oscar nomination for this performance. There are many twists and turns in this script and a growing crescendo of angst. He is definitely up to the task. Fasten your seat belts! He plays a cop who answers 911 calls and gets really caught up in one call that takes place during an LA fire emergency.

I have read some negative reviews – but I liked this film. It is an unapologetic story of loss .

I even shed a tear at the end. I’m a Kevin Kline fan from way back. And I like Melissa McCarthy. No one takes themselves too seriously – it is all down – played. And the therapists get their just deserts.

Cry Macho Sunday, Sep 19 2021 

I don’t think that this is the best film he’s done – but this is a pleasant little film. Mr. Eastwood’s character is asked by an old friend to locate and return his son – who is somewhere in Mexico. It’s a road picture. Old man , teenage Mexican. The kindness of strangers also figures in this film in the Senora who most graciously feeds them. My favorite line is ” I can’t cure OLD”. I don’t agree with his politics – but even in advanced age – Mr. Eastwood is a fine actor and director.

This is an English submarine series that is very absorbing. One of my favorite actresses – Suranne Jones, plays a policewoman detective who is sent on board to investigate a murder. The animosity between the Queen’s navy and the police doesn’t help matters. The pacing of this series is superb. Can’t wait to see the next installment!

Still waters run deep – is a great explanation of Matt Damon’s character. He plays a low key character – construction worker – whose daughter was imprisoned in France for a murder. He cannot accept this and eventually ends up moving to Marseilles to be near the prison she is in and to try to clear her name. He has a very lucky relationship with a French woman and her daughter and they become roommates. He doesn’t speak much French and she interprets in his search for the killer. This film is extremely well crafted – acting wise and in every other way. Be prepared for surprises.

the Cuban Thursday, Aug 12 2021 

Lou Gosset Jr. shines in this nursing home drama. He is an inmate in this somewhat strictly run home. A medical student opens up his life with things she intuits he would enjoy. And he opens up like a flower. A man who had retreated into depression becomes smiley, and happy – dementia or not. It is very well acted and directed.
