Lent: Part 25

The World According to Garp (1982) – I say it a lot, but Robin Williams was at his best when he was scripted, possibly because he knew how to pick scripts better than he could improvise them.

I’m really surprised I hadn’t seen this before now. I hadn’t even heard much about it, and there’s so much to discuss. Why haven’t you guys been talking more about this? It’s been more than thirty years. For fuck’s sake, it had a sensitive, unsensational portrayal of a trans character.

Suffice it to say, this may be my favorite movie this Lent.
