Rape On The Night Shift, Taking Advantage of the Working Poor

This builds off of the Me Too Movement.  There was an investigation done on the Janitorial industry.  It turns out that many of the janitors are women who work at night time and often by themselves.  And believe it or not, the industry has supervisors that take advantage of these workers.  Some of them don’t know their rights and some of them have fear of being deported.   If you are interested in this kind of story then check out the story from Nightline:

It is an interesting story and a good example of investigative journalism.

Fantastic Movies (2016)(March 8th)

DJ ROBO BISCUIT likes movies.  He enjoys watching them.  He enjoys pondering them.

Spotlight.  Spotlight was a good movie.  It had my attention all the way through.  It was about the “Spotlight team” at the Boston Globe.   They investigated the Catholic Church.  I know it sounds crazy but … there were Priests molesting kids.  And there were A LOT of priests doing it.   Gotta recommend the movie.   SPOTLIGHT!

 

The End of the Tour.  This is a movie about David Foster Wallace.  He was a genius.   And he committed suicide.   The movie is the interview between David Lipsky and David Foster Wallace.   Obviously, artists become more famous after they die.  Based on DFW’s work, he had genius qualities.  Also, he was not a perfect person by any regards but as a character study the story is very interesting!   I gotta recommend The End of the Tour.

 

Me and Earl and The Dying Girl.  This film was excellent.  The style was great.  Also, be ready for some FEELS.  It will hit you.  It serves as a good platform for an interracial friendship and the tender relationship between an awkward teen and a Dying Girl.  I really enjoyed the film.  It is definitely not your typical high school movie.  Two Thumbs up (and as a tribute to Tim Heidecker “I gotta give it 5 Bags of Popcorn.”)

The Talented Mr. Ripley.   Fascinating but a little bit sickening.  The film was definitely interesting.   I find it interesting due to the idea of the relationships and also, the movie is possible because the players within the film are all part of the wealthy elite.

Honorable Mention:

Adult World.  The movie has charm.  I enjoyed the soundtrack.  I liked the way this film FELT.  I have a little crush on Emma Roberts.  Definitely a great film for recent college grads, I think the film brings value in that way.
