Not surprising, really ...

... Why do films do such a bad job of portraying old people? | Film | (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Actually, films don't do such a hot job portraying lots of things. Professions, for instance. I've never seen a film about a newspaper that seemed at all like what I experienced working for one.


  1. I saw 4 months, 3 weeks, 2 days, yesterday, a harrowing account of a young woman trying to abort her baby illegally.

  2. Frank: Did you ever see THE RING? I'm guessing not. It's enjoyable enough trash, but it's one of the most unintentionally hilarious newspaper life that I've seen in recent years.
