Good Works

The antithesis is the way in and the way out. What you get in the middle- and you get a lot!- is all extra cheese. Enjoy the meal. The director D. J. Remark is definitely aware of the script. Or Jason Orr, the screenwriter was aware of it, from day one. I am going to…

Where’d You Go Bernadette?

There is nothing necessary about the existence of Where’d You Go Bernadette? And still here we are and there it is. Surprisingly, it qualifies! The co-writer and director, Richard Linklater has surprised me the most with this controversial project. I know that this is not the project through which you should be amazed of his…
