Brilliant acting, pacing, script and economy make the true story Spotlight a well deserving whisper candidate for an Oscar. Spotlight is about the decades of sex crimes within the Catholic Church that were uncovered by the Boston Globe in 2002.

I counted no fewer than a half-dozen films being touted by different bloggers as "the best film of the year" before I even arrived in Canada. A couple of those turned out to be far less impressive than the hype would have you believe.

The best art is that which holds a mirror to our lives. So if we as a society are aging, so too should the talkies. And here Hollywood teaches us one of the most critical lessons about turning global population aging into a sustainable source of economic growth.

Museums such as the Louvre simply would not exist if everyone saw a work of art once, and that's it. Therefore, why would anyone even bother decorating their own house with some art, if only planning to look at it just once? That also, can be the power of film.
