Etc, Etc, Etc

A slow week. Although A.O Scott has a Look at a criminally underrated movie from the 90's called Gattaca- I wouldn't go as far as calling it masterful but it's an often forgotten movie & deserved a much better fate upon its intial release. Starring Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman. The idea that in the future when a baby is born you can automatically tell -by DNA Sample- the baby's fate and future medical breakdown. An interesting concept about destiny and the basis of work.

Another noteworthy -but random- note comes from singer/songwriter Bruce Springsteen that's about to celebrate his 60th birthday in September. Here's a great video I found that's already gotten more than 2 million hits on Youtube- It' called Fire & was filmed at Neil Young's annual Bridge Benefit in 1986.
