I got into Haruf thanks to one of your posts. I think I've read most of his books. The spare prose plus the blue collar rural setting hits me every time. Brilliant writer.Only about a third of the way through Poachers and I'm not all that impressed. The stories are enjoyable but I saw some raves on Goodreads and Amazon and expected better. I will report back when I finish.
Yeah it's on both Amazon Instant and Netflx.
OK, this film is a masterpiece. The plot is haunting, the cinematography is genius (stark black & white). The use of silence is incredible, as the silence winds up being deafening. Remarkable movie.
Podhoretz writes superb film reviews.
+1, looking good old bean.

I truly loved HBO's Olive Kitteridge. It's been on my mind for days now. Frances McDormand is stellar, no one else could have played this role John Podhoretz's review points out that this type of series (quiet, brooding drama) doesn't really appear on the big screen anymore.

Nothing better than a phat-ass white girl in leggings or yoga pants.
Sounds like my ex-wife!
There are few things I enjoy more than a D.P. Moynihan floor speech. http://www.c-span.org/video/?47994-1/senate-session&start=4975
