Words and Pictures (of note) - January

Holidays gave me a bit of time to watch and read in January. Here are the articles and movies that I enjoyed most:

And a few that didn’t hit the mark:

  • Prometheus: Really good eye-candy, so good that I didn’t notice the paper thin plot until most of the way through. While I think that’s an achievement, there was nothing to talk about or reflect on, which is big part of the experience for me.
  • Inside job: 90 minutes of interviews with people who benefited from the 2008 financial crisis but had the power and duty to prevent it. It felt tired and whingey and it didn’t need to be (If you want to see how this sort of thing can be well done see Chasing Madoff or Enron: The smartest guys in the room)
