A Merry Jewish Xmas - Chinese Food and a Movie - and "Selma", the Very Best, and Essential Movie

We did our usual jaunt into the city today - free and ample parking everywhere - for a movie, followed by Chinese food - General Chang's Chicken. We hit the Union Square area before noon and the lines at the theater were long - funny, they all didn't look Jewish.

There were a few options for movies to see - Unbroken was already sold out until the 7PM show. But after reading the exuberant A.O. Scott review of "Selma" in today's Times that was our target. And lucky we were there early as the theater was sold out for the 12:50 show."Selma" is a must-see for everyone. Living history and some context for the anger emanating from the black community today. Plus some of the most amazing performances you can see on the screen and a top-notch directing job by Ava DuVernay. My wife's comment: it may be the best movie I ever saw.

Here is the New Yorker review.

  1. Hmmm. I would think "The Interview" would have been on that list since we shouldn't be censoring anything. ;)
