Here’s my post for Sami’s wonderful challenge, Monday Murals.
At Jason Rivera’s funeral his brother Jeffrey honors his baby brother.
Do you think if the murderer saw this it might help him understand the weight of his crime?
The widow of the slain NY police officer honors her husband in a eulogy today.
Ami Horowitz goes to Berkley to see if students will donate to the Kinder, Gentler Taliban.
If you like challenging films . . .
Haunting and challenging, Andrei Tarkovsky’s Mirror isn’t an easy film. It’s intriguing, beautiful and poetic as it depicts the dreams and memories of a dying poet. We rarely see the narrator of the film. We see his memories of life before and during WWII as well as conversations in the 1960s and 1970s.
Rather than a linear plot, the film consists of dreams, images (plenty of mirrors are shown). The most compelling scenes for me focussed on his ex-wife and their conversations about custody of their teenage son. The film drew me in and mystified me. I felt that I need to do some research to make more sense of Mirror so that I can better understand it.

Great commentary on the Biden’s failure in Kabul. I pray for the people stuck there.
Shaun Thompson recently got a third hour for his radio show. Mr. Thompson comments on the blunders of corrupt Pres. Joe Biden’s failure in Afghanistan and how the Democrats run for cover.

Shaun doesn’t give you the same old thing. He’s a true independent thinker.
You can now hear him from 4 to 7 pm Central time at 560theanswer.com. If you’re near Chicago, listen at 560 AM.
I wasn’t sure at first, but this classic is a winner.
Icy and aloof, hitman Jef Costello enters a night club, surveys the room, smiles at the chic woman playing the piano, proceeds to the back office and shoots a man. We don’t know the reason for the hit and we never do.
The police are called and haul Jef and some others in for questioning and a line up. Some witnesses’ think Jef is the one and and others insist he isn’t. The piano player knows he did it, but tells the police he didn’t. Why does she do that?
Though Jef has ice water running through his veins, a beautiful red head agrees to give him an alibi and she sticks to it. The police sense she’s lying but even when they ransack her apartment, she sticks to her story.
Jean-Pierre Melville’s classic Le Samouraï doesn’t feature any samurai’s. In fact, compared with Kurosawa’s or Tokuzo Tanaka’s samurai, you…
