Unbreakable

I was involved in a horrific six-car pile-up yesterday on my way home from work. I’m sharing this amazing movie called “Unbreakable” because that’s how I felt during the shocking experience of being trapped in my car as it got slammed from the rear with great…

HeartBurn

HeartBurn (1986) is a memorable movie directed by the great Mike Nichols. Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson were brilliant. Their characters were based on real life Nora Ephron and her then husband Carl Bernstein who was the famous journalist from Watergate along with his partner Woodward.…
