| Are We There Yet?
A journey of reawakening in a Country like ours - Gore Vidal called it the United States Of Amnesia - the absurdity of the behavior in the Southern communities even the kindest ones have a jarring effect. Viggo Mortensen is sheer perfection as the all American Italian. The opening of his heart and of his mind is a total joy and Mahershala Ali provides another magnetic character to his already rich list of magnetic characters but what makes this film fly so high is the humanity that Mortensen and Ali infuse their characters with. I loved them and Green Book provided me with one of the most satisfying endings of 2018. It leaves you with the hopeful thought that perhaps we're not there yet but that we are on our way. Happy New Year!

Goofs

Tony criticizes Don for not being familiar with several black musicians whose music they hear on the radio while traveling, one of the artists being Aretha Franklin. The original poster doubted that Tony would know Aretha Franklin because by the fall of 1962 Aretha had had only six chart hits, none of which reached higher than #37. However, although we think of Aretha today as a soul singer, in the early 1960s she was signed with Columbia Records. Her label failed to recognize her gospel roots and didn't know how to market her. Her early songs were pop/jazz and not the soul music she's remembered for today. Even though her early songs weren't big hits on the Billboard Hot 100, her songs were in the Top 10 on the Rhythm and Blues charts. Given Tony's love for black music, it is not implausible that he would have have been familiar with her.


Crazy Credits

"Larry the Crow" gets a mention. This was an actual crow that Viggo Mortensen found injured near the set, and tried in vain to nurse back to health. He was no doubt named for Viggo's favorite soccer team, San Lorenzo (Saint Lawrence in Spanish). The team nickname is "The Crows".
