    Active Measures, a documentary laying out the Russia-Trump connection in fairly excruciating detail, featuring a prominent appearance by John McCain.

    We (my DH, 19 yo DD) and I saw A Star is Born Saturday evening. The theatre was full. The movie was 2+ hours long, but held everyone's attention the entire time. Lady Gaga is so talented and Bradley Cooper did a great job both acting and directing. Sam Elliott seemed a bit old for his role, but they seemed to explain it well enough. I enjoyed it very much. I remember watching the 1976 version with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristopherson - will have to rewatch it.

    Saw "Three Identical Strangers" the documentary about the triplet boys who were separated at birth and discovered each other by chance at age 19.
    I don't think an adoption agency would be allowed to do that today, but in the 60s and 70s things were a lot looser.

    I can't wait to see that movie. My first recollection of it was when my father allowed me to stay up past 7:30pm to watch it with him on TV. (The Judy Garland/James Mason version) I don't know how old I was at the time--maybe 9 or 10. But I've watched it several times since.

    I've heard really good things about Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, so it sounds like they did the story justice.

    Lady Gaga is a talent. Quite classy when she wants to be. As Tony Bennett can attest.

    Yeah, well, I'm old-fashioned, but I've gotten well past the F-bomb. But thanks for the heads-up! As long as there isn't a derogatory word for female anatomy in every line of dialogue like there is in Quentin Tarantino movies, I think I can survive it without flinching.

    Since I have been laid up with this nasty man cold all weekend I watched some movies.

    I watched The Face of Love with Annette Bening and Robin Williams. Good flick! Sad though.

    I also watched a 1980s "brat pack" movie called St. Elmo's Fire. It was okay, perhaps even "good" if you put it in context.

    Then I watched one called The Overnight. It was hilarious but also risque!

    That was my life, circa 1971. Well, minus the newspaper ownership!
    Ordinary People is heartbreaking. It's hard for me to watch.
