As some of you already know, there’s been a change of plans. I had originally scheduled our fourth discussion on Apocalypse Now, but after reflecting on the movies I’d assigned so far, I realized how graphically violent they all have been. I feel responsible for the images I ask you to place in front of your eyes every couple of weeks, and I don’t want to take that responsibility lightly.
So to keep you from being immersed in intense violence for two straight months, we’ll discuss Man on Wire instead and give you a break. It will still be a fun experiment because it’s a documentary instead of the usual narrative fare, and should provoke a slightly different type of discussion. It has won many awards, and even has 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, so I’m hoping you’ll enjoy it!
The discussion will still be at the same time I had originally planned: Feb 28th at 8:30pm PST via Google+ Hangout.
As always let me know if you can make it so I can make sure you’re on the hangout invite list. I’d love to get as many of you as I can in the discussion! And if you want the details of each discussion delivered straight to your inbox, sign up for my email updates here.
