AMERICAN CASINO (2009): See This Documentary
Well, if you are tired of reading about the financial crisis and the bond market meltdown, you can now see the movie. American Casino (2009) is a documentary by Leslie and Andrew Cockburn. You can read reviews of this film on the Internet. I learned about this documentary while reading The New Yorker September 7, 2009, Out Of The Shadows by David Denby, pp 84-85. I like Denby's review of the film because he goes into some of the financial razzmatazz that lead to the meltdown. I need to get hold of this film, or, find a theater in Cincinnati that is showing it. Cincinnati showing a documentary about something that happened during the Bush administration is a joke in and of itself. Those from Cincy will know what I am talking about. I hope the Obamas plan to show this film at The White House!!!
BTW, I sold another sunflower print yesterday. People have an opportunity here to buy a signed print by a contemporary American artist (and an old artist at that) that has yet to be discovered on the national stage for as little as $50 bucks. What do you get for your investment? A signed full color print of two sunflowers talking about Van Gogh that measures 13" x 10.5". Here is something you can enjoy looking at while you are waiting for it to appreciate in value. Such a deal! Those who do not know what the sunflower print looks like can see it in earlier posts.
