i really enjoyed this review -- right up to the point where the writer (lucia bozzola) let her political views seep, ever-so briefly,into the analysis. This is a terrific examination of the film. I,however, do not care to know her feelings, albeit brief and snarky, on the current administration, regardless if it somehow can be linkedinto the theme of the review. thanks.
It's been awhile since you wrote this. But I just saw the movie last night and was still up at 3:30 am thinking about it and wishing I could watch again without wondering what was going to happen. I loved your analysis, I love the way you write, and I wish I could take your film class!!!! Interestingly, I didn't realize you were a woman until the end. AHA! A slightly different take than the other articles I read. It was a treat! When we walked out of the theater, my 17-year old son exclaimed: "That movie sucked!" And then, "It was the best movie I've ever seen!" I guess he got it.
The American government enacted the Hart-Engel's protocol way back in 2002 trying to force these big multinationals to stop these practises. All of the big companies promised to do something about it, not denying that the practise exists, and yet the deadline for enactment has come and gone.
You’re right, I fell for it.
I’m doing some late night research on Herbal Soup Recipes containing ingredients with high health benefits and I was stuck on a recipe with chard – something I’ve never had. I was so sick of reading freaking articles about chard… and then I came across yours. I feel like I’ve eaten it now. Plus, it made me laugh. Thanks for the smile. I’d had a super crap-tastic day and needed it. I love your writing style.
