Movies: The Postcard Killings, Human Capital, Waiting for Anya

A Big Hello to all.  It’s day 5 of “Shelter in Place”.  The biggest frustration to date is lack of products in many of the supermarkets/drug stores.  Binge purchases have cleared shelves, especially paper towels, toilet paper, antibacterial hand soap and a variety of ordinary goods.  The best news is several markets have established early morning SENIORS HOURS such as Safeway, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and Target. 

SPECIAL NOTE:  With ALL movie venues now closed, we decided to use what’s on line.  Our cable provider has pretty extensive movies available from several sources.  The first film below released March 13th (last week) of this year so we are hoping for more of the same until “Shelter in Place” is complete.

Movie 1:  The Postcard Killings

This film is based on the James Patterson bestseller by the same name.  It’s unique, creepy, suspense filled and grisly.  It’s genre is listed as Drama, Mystery, Thriller, Crime.  It’s filled with intrigue and suspense.  The critics were not kind with this film.  We enjoyed it!

Movie 2: Human Capital

Great acting overall and a solid concept for this pay per view film.  It’s listed as a drama but frankly it’s a mixed bag.  It’s based on a a 2004 novel by Stephen Amidon.   Ultimately there is simply too much going on,  i.e. hedge funds, wealth versus the middle class, dysfunctional families, and a tragic accident.

Movie 3: Waiting for Anya

This fascinating film was designed for preteens to explain Jewish atrocities of World War II.  It’s based on real events when 7500 Jewish children were smuggled out of  Southern France and into the Pyrenees Mountains of Spain.  It’s well done but a bit melodramatic.
