Final Saw?

Is this really the end run for Jigsaw and his moralistic attempts to make life more meaningful for a society that is locked into its own greed, social network navel gazing, and petty bigotry?  Say it ain’t so. I don’t believe for a moment that it is, but let’s assume for argument’s sake that Lionsgate […]

Coffeehouse 2: A Critic In Treatment

In less than a week, I’ve crammed in all 35 episodes of the second season of In Treatment, and I have to say, it was quite an emotional experience.  HBO must be commended for the audacity of producing and airing a television series about therapy with this kind of format.  Half-hour sessions with a psychoanalyst […]

A Satisfied Mind loves Hereafter
