I caught "Green Book."  Very enjoyable, and fine acting performances:

Also saw "Can You Ever Forgive Me?," a fine performance by Melissa McCarthy:

Both are recommended.

Susan & I are away in Greensboro for a few nights escaping 'winter cabin fever' - last night in our hotel room, we watched the film below:

Fahrenheit 11/9 (2018) - Michael Moore's newest film that is much more that lambasting Donald Trump - more a look at 'what's wrong' w/ America - an excellent review HERE.  Ratings: 6.6/10, IMDB; 81%, Rotten Tomatoes; 3/4, Ebert Website (link above); 3.7/5*, Amazon - I would normally go 4* on a Moore film but the documentary was long and at times rambling; the Flint water coverage was excellent, SO a 3 1/2 out of 5 would be my rating - however, a film worth seeing.  Dave :)

"Moonlight" it is not, but still an exceptionally beautiful film. Both Kiki Layne (Tish) and Stephan James (Fonny) are superb actors.
Good music too.
