    Corpus Christi

    I concur with that. As I recall at AFI the director pointed to the fact that one of the other inmates stopped Daniel, saying, "not you" as a reminder that we know that this is not who he is, but that others also recognize it.

    Corpus Christi

    I saw it at AFI. I liked it, but that comes from a Protestant (and from a tradition with a strong lay emphasis) perspective. I had hoped that SDG or Sister Rose Pacatte would have chimed in on this, but no luck. My review: https://screenfish.net/corpus-christi-the-body-of-christ/ My interview with the director: https://screenfish.net/1on1-with-jan-komasa-corpus-christi/
  3. Watched The General yesterday. We've been doing Hunters, Hotel Beau Sejours, and 100 Humans for our binge viewing.
  4. Latecomer. We just started watching. Things I note: No understanding of the property dynamics of an Episcopal church. The preacher quotes freely from the Gospel of Thomas as though it's scripture.
  5. Blinded by the Light - At the beginning, when Javed is writing in his diary, VO gives the date as Sept. 3, 1987
  6. Rebel Without a Cause is a far superior version of Blinded By the Light.
  7. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood: Feb. 8, 1969 (my 18th birthday) - opening scene ar Frank & Musso. Later they show date for Feb 9, and Aug 8.
  8. There are no talking animals at all. (There is a visual Timothy Q Mouse, however.) I wonder if anyone else has seen this yet and if they wondered if Dreamland (which turns into a nightmare) might not be biting the hand that feeds vis a vis Disneyland.
  9. I found it mediocre. It's not bad, but it's nothing new. It seems the main purpose of the film was to get her onboard for Endgame. They seem to like Ascension iconography. Who knew that cats are like the Tardis?
  10. Hotel Mumbai - Nov. 26, 2008. Date shown as the terrorists' raft comes ashore. Also on the memorial outside the Taj Hotel shown at the end.
  11. I'll keep you in mind if we have a hole. It's a Yahoo league with a kind of strange scoring (more categories than usual)
