Thumbs up ROBIN WILLIAMS: Come Inside My Mind (2018)

I watched the documentary of the life of Robin Williams - ROBIN WILLIAMS: Come Inside My Mind (2018) (on HBO) and it was worth it; I laughed so hard at times, I had tears in my eyes - - what a comedic genius he was. He will be missed. I highly recommend it.



He really did process reality differently than you or I...

Thumbs up Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story (2017)

On the Documentary Channel, I just finished watching BOMBSHELL: The Hedy Lamarr Story (2017). - Produced by Susan Sarandon. This most beautiful woman was a Hollywood star. However, it is entirely unknown that this woman also "invented" and "patented" something called "frequency hopping" for which she never got a cent!!!!!! Now worth approx. $30 billion (if I remember correctly, I hope, lol) and integrated into all cell phones, wi-fi, GPS, and Bluetooth, it was originally "stolen" (back in 1955) and used in bombers during the Vietnam war and earlier... absolutely amazing and fascinating story of her life - how the Hollywood sexist machine looked at her only as a sex object - so sad.

There is a trailer, but here I have decided on a YouTube video that more accurately describes a synopsis of this documentary, called The Brilliant Mind, wherein NewsHour Weekend's Megan Thompson spoke to Alexandra Dean, director of the film:



Hedy Lamarr ...

There is also an article in the Guardian, if you prefer to read the review:

https://www.theguardian.com/film/201...susan-sarandon

Default Diarist Anne Frank

I was browsing online today for an interesting movie-like documentary to watch and found an cinematic portrait of the life of Anne Frank, her parent's Edith and Otto Frank, and her sister Margot, and their small circle of family friends and helpers who stood by them during the Holocaust.

Smile Flying Solo

I recently saw a Canadian documentary "Flying Solo", a CBC episode of Doc Zone on living alone, on the Documentary channel on TV.

There was a good statement made by one of the interviewees to the effect that one must make a distinction between living alone, being alone, and being lonely. Personally, I love the feeling of being alone and the psychological freedom it gives me, which doesn't imply that I would not consider being in a relationship.

This documentary originally aired on TV in January of 2015; however, it is also available to watch on YouTube as follows:

Default Salute

A documary /movie of the most famous Olympic photo in Mexico Olympic games 1968.
The question "who was the white guy","did he support it?"
Peter Normon was an Australian athlete,and yes he was part of the protest.
that protest,destroyed peters life here in Australia,he was shunned by the whole white racist country,and went virtually unknown for years.

At the Sydney Olympics,the commitee,asked Normon,would he retract his involvement in the political protest,supporting the civil rights movement.If so they would restore his achiements and let him participatein the Olympics

Peter stood by his princples and said NO

I found this story interesting,so much I bought and framed the iconic picture.

Cool Whitney Houston

Saw the documentary "Whitney" 2018, which I liked very much, it was very interesting. I don't think there are many who haven't heard her sing: "I will always love you", from her film "The Bodyguard".
Considering what I have read in several posts, there are possible triggers...

Default Documentary for Music Lovers

The Wrecking Crew (Netflix) is an amazing documentary about a group of unassuming studio musicians to whom singers and recording superstar artists from the 60's, 70's and 80's always turned when they wanted perfection.
The songs they played on ranged from a bunch of bubble-gum pop songs to, "These Boots Were Made for Walking," and Brian Wilson's masterpiece, "Good Vibrations."
Their combined virtuosity was stunning, especially bass player Carol Kaye--a woman who looked like a middle-aged housewife.
Considering how many Number One songs by heavy metal and psychedelic band recording sessions they sat in for, they all seemed like regular, establishment types who looked more like they were more into office bowling leagues than Billboard's Top Ten.

RE: Your comment on the documentary viewed by Girl_On_Fire -- the one about Outfoxed: Rupert Murdock's War On Journalism inspired me to look into this particular documentary, WheatToast.


One of the things that came to mind, while watching it for about twenty minutes (it was hard to watch, especially after the repeated aural assault via the phrase -- "Somebody says" --- or something like that), was an idea concerning (the...when, where, why, how, etc.!) the rise of Fact-Checking in journalism or other media outlets.

I found a couple of interesting leads via one published scholarly article and one major political news magazine (TIME). I'll leave both of links to articles here, in case you or anyone else might be interested in reading about the Rise of Fact-Checking in journalism.

A) An PDF scholarly article published by The American Press Institute:

Fact Checking Polarized Politics: Does The Fact Checking Industry Provide Consistent Guidance On Disputed Realities? (Marletta, M., Barker, D.C., Browser, T. in The Forum, Volume 13, Issue 4, 2015, pp. 577-596)


B) From TIME magazine (2017):

Here's How The Fact Checkers Did Their Job Before The Internet (Fabrey, M., August 24th, 2017, Time Magazine).


I thought both articles about Fact-Checking were very interesting. And, I have to agree with you about your head-ache from watching that documentary. I didn't exactly sleep in today, due to watching just a portion of that documentary last night. I'll sleep in on another Sunday...
