  13. Process vs Open Theism

    Many years ago there was a thread (now read only) on Open Theism. Here's a podcast that would have fit well there. https://homebrewedchristianity.com/2017/10/09/teamprocess-vs-teamopentheism-live-from-st-paul/

  20. Air Doll

    I'm sure this will be referred to as the flip side of Lars and the Real Girl. I may even make some sort of reference when I write about it. But I'm not sure it really is. Koreeda has a great gift for transitioning a film from light to dark. In this a blowup sex doll comes to life and begins encountering the world - however, there is a level she remains a blow up sex doll. Wonderful performance. Very interesting story. One man she meets along the way tells her about a mayfly that has no insides - she identifies with that. We're left to wonder how many people are the same way. She meets her creator. She finds love and tragedy. She learns of mortality. Hope it gets a non-festival release (although it will be playing in San Francisco tomorrow and Sunday if you're there. And Koreeda is there for that festival.)
  21. Pray the Devil Back to Hell

    Documentary opening tomorrow in LA (been out a week in NY). Very interesting. After 13 years of civil war, women in Liberia (Christian and Muslim) said "enough." They demanded the rebels and govt attend peace talks in Ghana. And when the peace talks bogged down, they blocked the doors so people couldn't leave. Ordinary women risk their lives and do great things. I'm still transcribing stuff from interview with Abigail Disney (producer), Gini Reticker (director), and Laymah Gbowee (one of the leaders of the women).
  22. The Death of Mr. Lazarescu

    This film has been mentioned (postively) in a few threads (such as VIFF, TIFF and Top 10). I got an invite to a screening in a couple weeks. It's due to open in NY Apr. 26, LA May5 and national rollout to follow. Just a bit to whet everyones appitite (and to give those of you who have seen it a chance to prepare us).
