I want to write something longer and deeper, but just haven’t had the energy lately, physically or mentally. I’ve been trying to take care of things by seeing a range of doctors for various issues or tests. March is medical month I guess!
I didn’t watch the Academy Awards as I used to, but I did watch the acceptance speeches for ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’, which is still at the top of list of one of the best films I’ve ever seen. I especially loved the speeches for original screenplay, Jamie Lee Curtis, and most of all Ke Huy Quan. Every interview that I’ve seen with him has been acknowledgement on his part that he’s gotten very luck in ways that most people would not be, and was able to overcome a lot of hardships along the way.
I spent a while being jaded by the film industry, and am still very jaded by the streaming industry and how the pandering for profits is not only completely obvious, but celebrated by the very audiences that are being affected by business decisions over artistic choices.
If you made it this far, why not share this newsletter with a friend? Or share with me some of the things that you found that you liked this week. Either way, I’m thrilled!
