Movies: This is Not Berlin, David Crosby: Remember My Name, Official Secrets

Movie 1: This is Not Berlin

This youth inspired reflection on Mexico City in the mid-80’s is filled with all the angst and torment most generations experience at some point in their lives.

This film just happens to benefit from a great cast, the expert mix of revolt, underground nightlife, drugs and sexual liberty. Spanish with English subtitles.

Movie 2: David Crosby: Remember My Name

Wow! What an unexpected revealing look at singer-songwriter David Crosby, a music icon, now in his 70’s. This documentary is jammed with fear, regret, drugs, sex, heartbreak and soul searching.

It’s also a powerful reminder of incredible talent, perseverance and forgiveness. What a roller coaster ride through music history during our lifetime.

Movie 3: Official Secrets

This film is based on true events from the Bush and Blair administrations. The US and the British Intelligence ensnare UN Security Council members with blackmail to approve the invasion of Iraq.

It’s masterful film making and a reminder of a dark chapter in global events. Keira Knightley is superb.

  1. Look forward to seeing these movies. I saw CSN in Portland, OR in 1970. Neil Young played with them, if I remember correctly. Such a great concert for a college freshman!
