CULTURE OBSERVATIONS

Letterboxd is the only good social network in 2021

A few weeks ago, Jeff Goldblum was faced with a series of questions by Stephen Colbert in his appearance on The Late Show. Released as two individual video On YouTube, the questionnaire consisted of 15 rather soft and low-stakes questions for Goldblum to showcase his eccentric charm.

To start the second video, Colbert asks Goldblum favorite action movie to be. Instead of just listing one movie, Goldblum came up with a small black book from his coat pocket with clear anticipation of the question at hand.

“Now, this is a work in progress,” he told Colbert, so excited that he struggled to speak. “I will- I can’t- I will- I can’t say a word, but this is a series of movies, very quickly.” According to Colbert’s count, Goldblum listed 25 movies, which includes a mix of classics, modern films, and even one of his own: Jurassic Park.

It tries to include elements of a more traditional biopic like Lucille Ball (Nicole Kidman) wraps up two scandals — one that could destroy her career, the other her marriage — as well as another that will provide an important key to the film.
