Just saw it for the first time. Ben Foster is underappreciated.


everything that Taylor Sheridan writes, I'm a big fan of...

Sicario, Sicario 2, Hell or High Water, Wind River, and the TV show Yellowstone on the paramount network

and yes, Ben Foster is awesome...his 2 newest ones I recently saw, he's fantastic in as well; Galveston and Leave No Trace (leave no trace is on amazon prime)


It must be bad luck that Ben Foster hasn't popped a bit more. I've been fascinated by him since he brought an insane, wild but very effective energy to Alpha Dogs (one of those 'shouldn't work but does' performances). He may not be the right kind of guy to be a traditional lead, but he should have played a Marvel villain by now. He has range, too--he played Lance Armstrong well.

He should be some Scorcese's DiCaprio, on an indie level at least. He's always the most interesting part of a movie.

...Lord of the Plains. Great line.

I enjoyed Leave No Trace as well. A couple scenes I relate to
Spoiler: show
When jogger saw his daughter, thought it was weird, and then police came and rounded them up....

I used to take my daughter out of school for a road/camping trip in Spring...one year we were 3 miles in camping wilderness on a weekday and another backpacker thought it odd combo for BFE Missouri so ranger posse crashed our campsite at midnight, guns drawn. They split us up and interrogated us. craziest/scariest thing that I ever experienced.
Also , the climatic scene of Leave No Trace - where they click at each other with their tonques...same damn thing we used to do...I cried

I enjoyed documentary Dirtbag: The Legend of Fred Beckey.

Pioneering prolific mountain climber who kept at it, doing it his way, until he died at 96. It is also film about a man struggling with his decline and mortality. He could have ended up capitalizing on it all like his peers Yvon Chounaird and Jim Whittaker (REI), both interviewed in the film.

Interesting guy.

It appears that the FYRE FESTIVAL doc has dropped on HULU and there is another one coming to netflix tomorrow.

I can't wait to watch them as i am completely fascinated with that whole debacle.

Here's what I've found out since learning of the Netflix one while watching the Hulu one:

The Hulu guys paid the dbag organizer for an interview (as a viewer I would say it was absolutely worth it)

The Netflix one is made in part by the media company that marketed Fyre (seems dubious, but may turn out alright).

The Netflix one is directed by the guy that made American Movie-- so he has some credibility.

The directors are kind of being babies about it and attacking each other.

Lots of grief being given to paying Billy McFarland for his interview in the Hulu doc. As a viewer I would say it was critical to the story they told, that that story is valuable, and note that he eats that much money's worth of [expletive] in the movie and in the interview specifically.

I watched the Netflix version tonight and it had a very “the staircase” vibe in that...it’s weird all this is being filmed at the moment.

Other than that...completely mind blowing. This billy McFarland guy is a full blown sociopath.

And while sure it’s fun to crack on the silly millennials that got got, I was sympathetic. They all got royally [expletive] over.

Also...these fyre guys obviously never watched Wayne’s world 2. Bc if they had, they would know just how difficult it is to put on a music festival.

I watched the Netflix Fyre documentary and I thought it was very good.
