If you think Manchester By the Sea is one of the best-written films of all time, then there is no hope for either you or this world. How old are you? Have you ever seen a classic film before, you know, perhaps one written by Billy Wilder and any of his genius collaborators....blah blah blah"
You are totally out of line in throwing insults and character judgment at Baker Williams because his opinion is different from yours.<
I was disappointed in Manchester, mainly because Lonergan's play LOBBY HERO is one of my favorites. This film said nothing to me except for "here's a guy who had a rough life." (I think the same about Moonlight).
Casey Affeck's performance was right for the material, but I don't think it was much of a stretch for him.
As I said, it's not who else minds. The security at stagedoor, the cast, the other patrons on line. They don't know that you didn't see the show, so why should they care? It's all about how you feel about it yourself. If you're ok with doing something that you have a feeling might be wrong, then have at it.
Even though I do not stagedoor, I know that no matter how much I love an artist, taking someone's discarded playbill and getting in the line with those who saw the show (and YES did PAY to see it) would make me feel lousy and it would ruin the entire experience of meeting them.
I didn't remember Webster Hall, having worked on the film, but here's what I do remember: (interesting horror story about doing extra work)
I got the call to show up at the armory at 3:30 am that coming morning. I got there and learned that there were over 900 extras for that shoot. Each and every one of us had to go through wardrobe, hair and makeup. The wardrobe-there were racks and racks of 30's dresses, and since these were not private fittings, you wore the dress that
"I am sincerely curious as to why you voted for him."
Well, I did have one friend who was pro Trump. We had some arguments about him, and I had to stop being friends with her but it sounded to me like the two major points that she was voting for were 1. the wall and 2. Lower taxes.
"hat probably wasn't Ivanka. It was probably just another fake news story."
I didn't think the woman in the video which aired on tv looked the slightest bit like Ivanka. Also, I heard a report on the incident that mentioned Ivanka being in full makeup. The woman in the video didn't have any noticeable makeup on.
"I'm trying to understand why it's okay for an employer to force an employee to take part in a political event."
The Rockettes is a brand that contracts to perform at events other than Radio City. Not too hard to understand, as it's their prerogative to do so. I don't know if you're employed, but if you decide you don't want to do your job one day because you do't like what you're supposed to do, then your employer should have no problem with t
