When Charlie interviews somebody, they're really important. Not only that, they're really, really real. So my sincere apologies go out to Mr. Eastwood, Mr. Cooper, the prop master at Warner Brothers Studios and anyone else I may have offended.
As always with Film Festivals, you race to go see one film and the room is full so you hop into another theatre, seeing a film you hadn't expected and end up being so glad you did!

This movie is not a broader commentary on the geopolitical context, nor does it justify and excuse the short-sighted decisions or patently incorrect world views of the people who propagated this war on the American and Iraqi people. It is simply the story of one warrior and his family, and the struggle to do the right thing.
During a time when so much of hip-hop is saturated with blatant sexual references, we have Joey whose album dropped on what is hard to believe is only his 20th birthday. The album permeates with an introspection and lyricism found in someone much older than Joey's 20 years.
As the Boy Who Lived is exploring the Burrow, he notices that "the old radio next to the sink had just announced that coming up was 'Witching Hour, with the popular singing sorceress Celestina Warbeck.'" And with that one line of text, Universal Entertainment finally found a solution for a challenge that had been plaguing the Diagon Alley project.
Michael Moore is a great documentary maker and as American as anyone else. He just happened to stick his foot in his mouth like all of us are prone to do.
