My respect for the Coen brothers guarantees
I'll watch anything they do. Doesn't mean I'll
like it though; i.e., nothing special about
Raising Arizona. And the opening doesn't
hold a candle to that of The Godfather or
Inglorious Bastards. And perhaps even
2001 A Space Odyssey.

As for Covid deniers, and while we're on the
subject of movies, all I can say is may the
odds be ever in your favor.

Happy Friday Miss C!
