The House I Live In

"You have to understand the war on drugs has never been about drugs." That explains this entire documentary in a nutshell. The war on drugs is a carefully constructed, slow moving, self-destruct system. And that's all I have to say about that. This is an older documentary from 2012, so you can watch it on Amazon, Google Play, YouTube and iTunes. It's also playing on cable if you have access to Viceland. 

I Am Not Your Negro

Maybe it's time for people to stop rolling their eyes every time someone brings up race. Maybe it's time for all of us to listen. Maybe. Or we can cover our eyes, look away and pretend none of this ever happened. Again. Maybe this time doing the same thing we always do will result in something different. Maybe. Look for I Am Not Your Negro in theaters on February 3rd. 

A Cure for Wellness

This reminds me of a terrifying dream I had repeatedly for a time when I was younger. From what I can see in the trailer, it looks kind of beautiful too. The coloring, creepy visuals, use of light and dark, it all seems to congeal into something interesting at the very least. I feel like we should give this one a try. A Cure for Wellness comes to theaters on February 17th.
