Southern Minnesota is pretty rural, farm country. Hurrying back to my car after breakfast, all I could think about was a pickup truck full of rednecks dragging me by a rope around my neck, attached to the back bumper, then shot and buried in a grave where no one would discover my carcass for 15 year...

As a mixed race immigrant who's fairly traveled in America, I can tell you that I've had a bad experience in Minnesota. I was driving from Nashville to Seattle. I'd began my trip during my dinner break from Walmart at midnight. Around 6am, I pulled into a Minnesota truck stop on I-90 for breakfast. ...

Keeping with my current fascination for Scandinavian and Korean noir, I recently saw the Korean film "A Day." Fairly violent, it has two men keep reliving a traumatic accident. (Think "Happy Death Day"). As in some Korean flicks, their annoying trope of over-dramatic acting with ...

Wow. What a detailed - and harrowing - story. About eight years ago, when a counselor at a drug treatment center said I had PTSD, I looked at her like she was crazy. "I was never in the Armed Forces," I reminded her, but she went on to explain it had nothing to do with that and people outs...

Loft (Belgium, 2008) - Excellent European crime thriller. More twists and turns than a rural highway. The film was remade in 2010 (The Netherlands) and 2014 (Hollywood).

Pi. I'm not sure if this is an obscure film. Maybe a cult favorite, though. People describe it as the bastard child of Eraserhead and Tetsuo: The Iron Man. In a sense, that's about right, although Tetsuo is so highly kinetic it's like watching a movie on fast forward.

Midsommar - Stay. Far. Away. Watch The Wickerman instead. All the lead actress did was cry and cry and cry and cry and cry through the whole f-ing film. VERY annoying.

My $.02 Elle (French) - Kinda weak in terms of the story. Acting was okay. Forgotten (So. Korea) - Not bad. Couple of nice twists here and there. The Ghost Writer (British) with Pierce Brosnan and Ewan McGregor - Okay. If you see it, cool. If not, no biggie. The Guilty (Danish) - a film set mostly i...

Take Shelter - Fairly decent acting, kinda slowish film. I was let down by the ending.

Unlike my relatives, I never lost my West Indian accent when I came to the US, and I've been here for 46 years. I attribute that to poor assimilation with the "new world." If, all along, it was an autistic thing, that's news to me.

I like slots m'self. Lost quite a lot of money at real casinos, though. Now I just play virtual slots on my computer and Android TV Box. Easier on the wallet.

The fingernail scratching. The sudden loud bell would make me jump out of my skin and probably raise my blood pressure to dangerous levels.
