“Tokyo Story”: This is a quietly heartbreaking story from 1953 directed by the famous Yasujirō Ozu. It tells the story of an aging couple who go to visit their grown children and find themselves ignored, their children too busy to pay them any attention. It is only Noriko, the widow of their middle son Shoji, who values them. It’s a lesson in not taking your parents for granted because they will be gone one day.
Taylor Swift “Lover”: Whether you love her or loathe her, a new TS album is unavoidable, undeniable, everywhere. She’s grown on me, mostly because her music has turned pop and because she voiced her support for the queer community loud and proud (with no upside for her since she’s already quite hated by many). Note: There will be five different versions of “Lover” at Target.
Dave Chapelle “Sticks & Stones”: On Netflix August 26th, the iconoclastic comedian will undoubtedly change the way you think about the world, once again.
