I happened to watch Misbehaviour, a movie I stumbled upon by luck, on the eve of the 2021 Miss Universe pageant, which took some of the buoyancy out of  this gentle and lightly humorous look at the real-life protests surrounding the 1970 Miss World competition and the rise of the Women's Liberation Movement in England. … Continue reading Review: MISBEHAVIOUR (2020) A Warm, Gentle, and Lightly Humorous Look at One Attempt Pulverize the Phucking Patriarchy

From The Vault: Rewatching “Two Weeks Notice”

Content Warning: The most recent treasonous and seditious former U.S. President makes a cameo at about 1:09:54. Jumping forward 20 seconds will spare you. I had this idea to do a sporadic series called "From the Vault" where I'd rewatch and review movies from yesteryear. I mean, let's be honest, I would rewatch and review … Continue reading From The Vault: Rewatching “Two Weeks Notice”
