@u2764 I wouldn't point you to one film. I'd point you to the "Every Frame A Painting" series of video essays: youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2w

Mastodon Admins are now required to smoke weed at least once per inter-instance drama, as per the new Federation Peace Convention aimed at restoring peace and justice in the galaxy. Thank you.

Since people liked my toot yesterday about the Washington Post's long-ago "People Met in Hotel Lobbies" column, I pulled some examples from 1890 out into a blog post:
