Singing Detective

The Singing Detective is the poor man’s version of A Beautiful Mind. Whereas A Beautiful Mind was based on the true story of John Forbes Nsh, Jr. who suffered from paranoia and schizophrenia, Robert Downey, Jr. plays a fictional (from what I can tell) paranoid /schizophrenic writer who hallucinates into song because he witnessed his mother and her lovers’ sexual misbehavior as a child. Fine acting but a really weird movie. Mel Gibson’s most unusual and creative role yet as the psychoanalyist. (That’s a compliment.)

'Thelma & Louise' 25 years later still poses a challenge to male entitlement
'Gleason' and two other summer movies about fathers: Hunt for the Wilderpeople & Captain Fantastic
"Ben Hur" a path of redemption
'The Angry Birds Movie' is a volatile pun fest
