Hang Me Oh Hang Me

When the credits for Inside Llewyn  Davis began rolling, I says to Madam Cura, "Well, they said it was grim."  The sense of dread fills every scene.

A Christmas Serial Mr. Pierce. 

We are two nations but we do not have to be. We are two nations because we choose to be. We are two nations because we choose to blame the poor for their lot. We are two nations because we choose not to alleviate problems but to place the blame for them on the people least capable of solving them. We are two nations because we rationalize selfishness as virtue, success as being moral in and of itself, and however it was achieved, and contempt as wisdom. We are two nations because we choose to be.

It comes in three parts.  Go. Now.

Joy of the Season, Dear Reader.

Tom Laughlin, RIP

Yeah, yeah, Peter O'Toole and Joan Fontaine are the day's "biggest" obituaries, but this guy had a far bigger influence on my movie-going childhood.
