Nice subject selection for a thought evoking look at where we each are in our lives. It makes me want to know the man.

This is a fair and accurate revue IMO.

I could not get past the fact that as a viewer, the "I know how this ends" bubble kept popping up at plot turns. I mean you get to the edge of your seat and the bubble pops up.

I watched Sound Of Music afterwards. It worked better. Valkyrie has no chance of standing any test of time.

Cruise was good. Not great, but good. The English accents of some of the supporting actors were distracting. A pretty big faux pas.

I liked the fact that the director refrained from the over use of hero shots so common in practice in appealing to today's ADHD audiences and critics.

The tempo of the film worked for me and it is quite possibly one of the most seamless films that I have ever seen. I am impressed on every level at the production values from pen to parting shot.

I can understand how some would not appreciate this film though. It most definitely is not of the pure entertainment genre. It requires a level of engagement of subjects that could make one uncomfortable.

However, for some people this film will be a magic carpet ride. It certainly was for me, and I will sit through it's several hours long run time again.

While I pretty much have to agree with Ashaw on many of the points in that letter, the issue is really about doing what we can and correcting some issues in our usage architecture.

Many countries have done away with free bags at checkout (Germany for one example) with a small fee being paid by people who require them.

In travels through some water rich third world countries plastics and yes plastic bag fouling of the waterways is
quite an apparent issue. It is not a rumor. It is simple fact.

The reality is that recycling is a last line fix. It is a sign of failed architecture. Would have been great if the writer had addressed some of this.

Ah how about driving the main road on the way to the border and getting pulled over, mugged and everything stolen? Safe my ass.

And both incidents were with veteran Baja travelers in the past year.

THAT is not media amplification it is simple fact.

Wow! Journalism! Great piece.

We can only hope that the closeness of this community will allow for a compassionate solution to an untenable situation.
