Poetry Corner Dud By Wayne F. Burke great wall of China cloud the sun sinks down, bright eye closing; last tee-pe-ed rays spread on a choppy sea of divots: blue-gray air craft carrier on horizon sails away– a dud sunset, except for the aftermath of gray natural bridge and hot orange flame plus purple waves sailing in like a synchronized  swim...

Max’s View

Sunset Boulevard (1950) **** In the movie “La La Land,” Los Angeles is a fantasy land for its two lead characters. By the end, they have achieved all of their ambitions, both artistically and financially. “La La Land” is an idiotic movie about Hollywood with an offensively upbeat conclusion. “Sunset Boulevard” is a brilliant movie that offers a bru...
