Ah yeah, both A Band Called Death and Man on Wire are really great. Man on Wire is a captivating event. I had read the book Let the Great World Spin and I remember thinking, what a random thing to...

Pretty special documentary to have this kind of impact. A truly great documentary is so investigative that it actually makes a difference. This one had certainly a little luck to help it, but I'm...

To each their own. I love the contrast of Diane's pseudo intellectual character with the patrons of the bar. For instance, one of my favorite Diane moments is in the episode where they get a con-man...

That's interesting, I hadn't thought about it that way. You can technically sign away some constitutional rights, like the right to a jury trial, and even free speech rights, like a confidentiality...

Ah well protests and gatherings are usually different because the restrictions are considered time, place and manner speech- which is afforded less protection generally. Add that to the deference...

What? Not incorrect. A public university's actions absolutely constitute state action. Why do you think public universities have to defend affirmative action in the Supreme Court like every 4...

Kiana and Love As Arson, I think you both make correct and reasonable points, but when applied to the working class whites, though they are benefiting from a racist system, the struggles created by...

Don't they usually try to stay relevant by talking shit on Radiohead? Seems they've moved to Kanye now. I think I'll keep track of who they're hating because whoever it is probably makes great music.

There are plenty of great shows to watch before bothering with Dexter. I stopped watching in season 3 and from what I hear it gets much worse.

Yeah but he also made The Godfather part III. And btw I love The Conversation. The Godfather II is just a top five all time film for me.
