The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

The Real Movie Times

For John, BLUFYou have been warned.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

My wife has been anxious to see the new movie, with Helen Mirren, Woman in Gold.  The move is about the fight of Ms Maria Altmann to recover a painting of her aunt, the Gustov Klimt Portrait of Adele Bloch- Bauer I.  No spoiler here.

The point of this post is that while you may think you know the time of a movie, from looking on the Internet, you may be misinformed.  My wife checked and found a 3:30 showing.  We arrived in time, but the show actually started (well, the previews and adverts and the first part of the show) at 3:00.  I talked to the theater manager and he said that you had to make sure it was the actual Showcase Cinema web site.

As for the movie itself, I thought it was wonderful and technically very good, especially the movement from the street scene of Germans coming into Vienna to the actors behind a pillar, talking.  On the other hand, the scene at the airport has the passengers boarding while the gust lock is still on the rudder, and the aircraft is a DC-3 and not a Fokker Tri-motor.  You probably wouldn't have noticed.  Well worth seeing, for the history and for the drama and for the realization that some just can't acknowledge how horrible WWII was for individuals, groups and nations.
