The Critical Mass
Films from the quarantine. I’ve come to the slow realization that my favorite living actor is Steve Buscemi. Trees Lounge is an unrecognized classic.
My favorite dead actor. Humphrey Bogart. That little lip-curl sneer thing he does is pure acting.
Books from the quarantine. I am currently reading six. For Whom the Bell Tolls, Ron Chernow’s Grant, Alex Garland’s novel The Beach, The Complete Short Stories of James Purdy, Monsters and Myths: Surrealism & War in the 1930s and 1940s, and Whiskey and Ice, the true story of a Lake Ontario rumrunner during the prohibition.
