This past weekend on our flight back from Fort Myers, the wife and I watched "Knock Down the House" on Netflix. Great political documentary on AOC and a few other less successful female candidates that were trying to take down powerhouses in Congress.

We also watched "A Simple Favor" with Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively. It was solid, and definitely had a couple plot twists we weren't expecting.

I decided to watch the classic film The Night of the Hunter on Amazon Prime. My reasons for watching it were pretty simple: Robert Mitchum and those iconic "Love/Hate" finger tattoos (see below). The movie sagged a bit in the middle, but I still really enjoyed it. If nothing else, Robert Mitchum is a treasure and this is a peak film for him. Also, the movie is beautifully shot in a 1950's sound stage kind of way.

One thing I didn't expect is it's one of the most pro Christian films I've ever seen in a good way. The movie critiques certain characters who claim their faith but fall short, while simultaneously making it clear the Christian faith itself is truth and a force for good. In that sense there's some parables you can draw with religion in America today.

Anyway, I digress. In summary, these tattoos are bad ass:

Speaking of classics, want to see Hoodlum Priest. Fascinating story of a gritty St Louis priest and the country’s first halfway house. Maybe a more fascinating story about getting it made and how it went from a critical fave to afterthought in a matter of months.
Haven’t found a place to stream it though. Do dvd rentals still exist?

United Artists refused to discuss a release schedule until after company executives saw the finished film. On February 3, 1961, Murray and Wood showed the final print in New York. "We were trembling as we waited in the hallway outside the executive screening room," Murray recalls. "Our lives were on the line. The film ended. The door opened, and out they came. First was a big, tough, gruff guy named Bill Heineman, who was head of sales. He had his handkerchief out and was crying. Walter and I looked at each other in disbelief. Then came Max Youngstein. First he hugged us. Then he dragged us into his office and toasted us with brandy. On the spot he offered us a ten-picture deal, five years, two pictures a year."

There's an outside chance you might see me in that doc, as I volunteered for Cori Bush and was filmed a few times. But I hope not, because I wasn't doing anything particularly interesting.

Did the Internet adequately freak out about how creepy Sonic looks? Sweet merciful crap. They're showing horror previews before Detective Pikachu. Terrifying.

But they’re changing it. It’s disappointing.
