movies and books


Rented two dvds on the weekend, Che and The International.  The International is a complicated but introguing thriller with Clive Owen and Naomi Watts.  Che is a movie like no other I have ever seen.  Not sure the flashbacks to the revolutionary struggle mixed with che’s visit to NYC in 1964 works to an advantage. Any fan of Benicio Del Toro will find the film a worthwhile exploration.   Bookwise, I finished Sea of Thunder by Evan Thomas (2006) a detailed study of the Pacific War with special attention to the Battle of Leyte Gulf. Thomas looks in depth at the Japanese commanders.  When I checked the mail today I found a book shipment from Amazon.ca – Selected Chaff: The Wartime Columns of Al McIntosh. of the Rock County Star Herald.  I found him through the PBS Ken Burns series The War.  I am looking forward to reading this.
