Like some of you, I get a little nervous when a film seems to be too overtly political.  There’s a delicate balance in doing those right.

But as most of you know, if Clooney is involved I’m willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. Especially when I spot a couple other people who I love are in this movie.

A beautiful Terrance Blanchard composition.

And within this clip, Denzel, Wesley, Giancarlo, John Turturro, CHARLIE MURPHY!!!

And Spike…man.

Enjoy!

A Man Provides

Been rewatching Breaking Bad.  Still an all-timer, but I’m a little less enthralled this time around (away from the hype I guess.)  But still more Hall of Fame scenes and sequences than most shows will ever get.

Speaking of…

A lot of us remember Giancarlo cutting his teeth in Spike’s early films, so it was a pleasant surprise to see him show up in Breaking Bad. It was an even more pleasant surprise to see how many scenes (and really all of season 4) he stole as Gus Fring.

Awards are awards, and I really did feel like Aaron Paul deserved an Emmy for one of the other seasons, but I felt a little heated when he won over Giancarlo a couple years ago.

Anyway, enjoy my favorite single monologue from the show.
