    With the Epstein episode in Washington in the news, I watched Clue from Amazon videos... where everyone involved in government was doing bad things and being blackmailed. Ingenious story plot.

    The dining room scene in 'Clue' explains Washington 101. For if you can't be blackmailed, you are not wanted in any position of power.

    Republicans in Washington wanted nothing to do with Epstein because it was a rumor in Republican circles that Epstein's prostitution ring was a Mossad operation.

    Similarly, DC is on edge. “Epstein bragged about his contacts in Washington,” Boies said. Reporters are likely to dig into why the Justice Department decided not to prosecute Epstein and kept the deal secret from his victims. One theory circulating among prominent Republicans is that Epstein was a Mossad agent. Another is that the George W. Bush White House directed Acosta not to prosecute Epstein to protect Prince Andrew on behalf of the British government, then the U.S.’s closest ally in the Iraq war.

    'Clue' is about those being blackmailed wanting the blackmailer and everyone who knows about the crimes, dead. And one comment by the character Mr Green... half of Washington would be implicated if Miss Scarlet's prostitution ring was exposed, so she was in no real danger. This is how Epstein felt protected. The more who partake, the more protection.

    I would like to watch 'Murder by Death'. As we get closer to September and cooler days, popcorn with murder mysteries is a must.

    It's not new, but Bagdad Cafe is a good movie, full of mood and a slow thoughtful pace. CCH Pounder is, as usual, wonderful. It falls apart at the end, as so many movies do, but up until then there is a strange, beautiful feel to it, greatly due to the music (vocals) that accompanies it. I watch it at least once a year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCLpLWcX2cg

    The last movie I say is Avengers, the last chapter. I didn't like it, because I wasn't expecting such ending. Besides, if someone knows good and interesting films similar to those from Marvel(not DC), please, let me know.

    Try "Sin City", a masterpiece by Frank Miller :)

    Just in case, make sure to turn on the close captioning or you will spend the first hour wondering what the heck is going on. LOL :)

    Hotel Mumbai, on Hulu.

    It was pretty intense, and horrific, to think this was a true story.

    In this year of the plague, what movies are you watching while you self-cocoon? (I'm tired of talking about the virus)

    My wife and I are in our isolation watching The Age of Innocence. What an amazing movie, based on an amazing novel, and, inexplicably, made by the director of Raging Bull!!!

    The novel, which repays re-readings, is a 19th century book of manners by a female author brought to the screen with amazing faithfulness by a director who has made some of the most violent male-centric films of our era. Yet it is beautiful, stirring, romantic and absolutely faithful to its source. It has many strong scenes, but the most moving to me is when the hero simply unbuttons his paramour's glove and kisses her wrist. It is wrought with sexual innuendo and undeniable passion. The perfect example of saying more with less.

    Fabulous movie, isn't it? That was indeed a wonderful scene, but the end also did me in.

    Oh, what might have been...

    The part in the end that my wife loves, and quotes repeatedly, is, when speaking of the wife, who is relatively clueless, the narrator says, "And she had died thinking the world a good place, full of loving and harmonious households like her own." We think the same, and it keeps us happy.

    I'm old enough that when I think of old movies, that is, those before my time, I think Busby Berkeley and 42nd Street (it's really quite good).

    Last night we watched Psycho . . . not something to calm your nerves, but an interesting case study in the change in movies and audiences. While it shocked audiences in 1959, it wouldn't stir many emotions in today's youth. I love it however, especially all of the misdirection Hitchcock pitches at the audience.

    One of my favorite scenes:

    "If we act in any other way I’ll be making you act against what I love in you the most….Don’t you see, I can’t love you unless I give you up."




    Sorry, but I couldn't abide May. She knew much more than she let on and was ruthless in getting what she wanted. The lovers sacrificed themselves, in my opinion, for an innocence which never existed. They were the real innocents, and it destroyed their lives.

    I have no doubt your own household is loving and harmonious, but hers was not. She was lying to herself in order to live with herself.


    Btw, Scorsese says this is the most violent film he's ever made. If you think about it, you can see it's true.

    Meanwhile, I've been watching crime serials, first "Thou Shalt Not Kill", from Italy, which is available on Amazon through the PBS subscription, and now the "Valhalla Murders" from Scandinavia on netflix. They're both good, but I'm getting a little tired of the fascination in the latter countries, and the U.S. for that matter, with serial murderers.

    I know from first hand experience, not just studies, that you're infinitely more likely to be killed by a family member or close acquaintance. Although less jazzy, I like those character studies better.

    Just my two cents, as always.

    Also, I just finished up "Bloodlands: Europe between Hitler and Stalin." Can't recommend it enough.

    It's not a movie; it's a series on HBO, and I'm kicking myself for having started it because it's scaring me to death. Or maybe scary is the wrong word; seriously disturbing maybe, or both.

    It's called "The Outsider".

    I just stopped it in the middle of Episode 5. When I find I'm saying to the characters repeatedly "Don't go in there", it's time to take a break. My husband refuses to watch these kinds of things, and my son already watched it, and it's scarier when I'm alone.

    Stephen King has a seriously disturbed mind to think up something like this.
