    I thought Michael Keaton did a fine job in Clean and Sober; I didn't know he was still making movies. I need to catch up.

    Watched the pilot tv show... "The Good Doctor" about an intern with autism. Aired Monday night 9pm central. It held my attention!

    I binged watched Big Little Lies, a television mini series.

    High on style, low on substance. The writing was mediocre and no matter how it was presented (flashback style) there was nothing interesting about it other than the pretty film stars who David E. Kelley convinced to star in it.


    It is based on Liane Moriarty's novel. I didnt read this novel but
    I read a similar one by this author, also told in flashback style. That must be her trademark.

    The season premiere of Curb Your Enthusiasm. I really love this show.

    Got "The Hero" from the library (thankfully). I thought it was so SLOW. I only watched about 45 minutes... kept waiting for it to get better.

    May have been good but hate sub-titled movies.

    I saw Mother! a couple weekends ago. It was the kind of film you appreciate and contemplate; it is not one you like or enjoy.

    I was on the plane yesterday trying to watch Curb... the periscope episode. It was so funny but the signal kept fading out. Now I have to see if I can find it online!

    "Dolores" - documentary about Dolores Huerta, co-founder with Cesar Chavez of the Farmworkers Union.
    I thought it might be dry like so many documentaries are, but this was very well done and very engaging. Used a lot of footage of actual events.
    Also very informative for teaching about grass roots movements.
