So, no review today, although one was written and it's a good one for a new movie that's just making its way into theaters after pin-balling through the film festival circuit. It's slots in perfectly with the "Tell Me a Story" theme of the regular Sunday "Don't Make a Scene" feature, and might appeal to anyone with a taste for fantasy, but also reality, as well. And although it is a flawed film in a number of ways its visuals are so striking and so fresh that it demands to be seen in a theater environment. Although the review isn't until Saturday, I'd still recommend seeing Tarsem Singh's "The Fall."
Today, another matter.
I'd like to direct your attention to this article that appears in Salon.com. I found it inspiring, thought-provoking, and given that its Independence Week (and its inevitable accompanying soundtrack of vacuously accomplished explosions) quite timely.
It's about Dalton Trumbo (pictured below), and the Hollywood Blacklist.
