            Watch SKETCHBOOK on Disney+

              Animators are unsung heroes, their collective work plays the most significant part in any animated movie but yet they get no recognition. These pencil-wielding magicians might just like working under the cloak of anonymity. Disney+ is celebrating the men and women who make the true magic come to life. This is the perfect time to subscribe to Disney+ to watch SKETCHBOOK. I am really pumped in watching legendary Disney animator Eric Goldberg unleashing his craft upon the world. Since its inception, Disney has always been about animation. It’s good to see these good folks being celebrated by Disney. SKETCHBOOK will start streaming on April 27.

                the torment

                What I am watching this weekend: The Torment (L’enfer) by Claude Chabrol on Kanopy

                  There is more to a library card nowadays. You can download books, audiobooks, music, stream, and graphic novels without setting foot in a library. My favorite freebie from my local library is Kanopy. The avantgarde streaming service is a welcome addition for unusual classic movies that you will not find with other streaming services. You stream thousands of films for free, thanks to the generous support of your public library or university. I am allocated 5 movies a month. This weekend I am watching The Torment by director Claude Chabrol from 1996. The French title is L’enfer. I do not know why they do not translate it as Hell. The movie stars Emmanuelle Béart, François Cluzet, and Nathalie Cardone.
