Green Book

 Green Book

Directed by Peter Farrelly. With Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini, Sebastian Maniscalco. A working-class Italian-American bouncer becomes the driver of an African-American classical pianist on a tour of venues through the 1960s American South.

Best movie of 2018, at least according to the Academy. It was an interesting movie using some sad tropes that I wish we’d just be able to move past, as a Nation, but it seems like we’re never going to be able to get over them completely.

Buy On Amazon!

Green Book originally appeared on Adam Selvidge’s Website on March 25, 2019.

    Haven’t watched this or most of the other “best picture” nominees, so I don’t have much of an opion yet; but would you say Spike Lee was justified in throwing a hissy fit on the Academy Award audience floor because Green Book won and Spike’s movie didn’t?
