Just caught up to watch Lucy. Some of the visuals were decent, and the editor deserves some respect, but what a godawful stupid fucking movie. Transformers level stupid.

Saw this last night. Very good documentary on the debates between the two which ABC News hosted during the 1968 Republican and Democratic National Conventions. I knew that they were on TV together, and that's the extent of my knowledge, and I also knew of the events that occurred in Chicago during the Democratic National Convention, but watching this allowed me to put some disjointed pieces of knowledge together for a deeper understanding of what was going on in the United States during that time.

as a companion movie, check out "Medium Cool". Stars a young badass Robert Forster as a jaded news producer.


more importantly, director Haskell Wexler decided to film in Chicago during the 68 convention. when police started kicking the shit out of protestors, he threw his actors in the middle of it in character and then backwrote the story to include the footage. the film becomes a stark blend of documentary and fictional narrative. you can judge for yourself whether it all works but it's a compelling time capsule in any case.
