Seriously? She killed someone, old or not. If that doesn't affect her, she's cringe material as a person. Hopefully not...

Short seller Jim Chanos recently explained why President Donald Trump's
infrastructure spending plan will not lead to big economic growth
because of the way it is structured.
 
Chanos is founder and managing partner of Kynikos Associates, one of the
largest short selling investment firms in the world. Chanos is lauded
for his prescient negative calls on Enron and Tyco.
 
"That's just another sort of fake fiscal news, if you will. It's going
to be public-private partnerships," Chanos said.
 
"Because private investors need high rates of return, these deals
generally haven't been good deals for anybody. ... We're told that the
private sector will be able to do this better. Well, they might be able
to do it better and faster, but only for a small number of projects," he
added.
 
The investor cited his experience with Macquarie Bank, a company he was
short in the past, which was a pioneer in infrastructure as an asset
class trend. He noted the company only focused on projects with "clearly
definable cash flow" such as parking structures and toll roads.
 
"Real projects that we need — repairing, refurbishing, whatever — are
tougher. You're not going to get private investors to sign up for those
without definable cash flows," Chanos said. "It's something that sounds
good but when we actually start looking at projects that make sense for
private investors leveraged up with state-backed or federally-backed
bonds to do a project, we're going to find that it winnows down the list
dramatically."
 
The White House website said Trump's infrastructure plan will rebuild
U.S. cities and states by "unleashing private sector capital." The
proposal will leverage $200 billion of government funds into $1
trillion, according to the page.
 
In addition, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross co-wrote a white paper in
Octobver 2016, when he was a senior policy advisor to the Trump
campaign, which said "for infrastructure construction to be financeable
privately, it needs a revenue stream from which to pay operating costs,
the interest and principal on the debt, and the dividends on the equity."

One aspect of Ray's films is the minimal use of dialogue. He mostly tries to convey the message relying on facial expressions, voice tone etc. This is esp. a stark contrast when you compare with other Indian movies in general.

I was (re)watching "Badlands" recently and thinking about how some people say, "show, don't tell". That would be difficult to accomplish with some of Holly's inner monologues: when, while looking at some old photos, she wonders how her life would have turned out if Kit had never met her; or comparing a train making its way across the plain in the distance to a caravan in the adventures of Marco Polo.

BTW, one recent Indian film I have heard is pretty good is "Dangal".

Freakin hilarious to see trump trolls defy logic here - just as moronic as their Dear Leader is. Sadly, this country is outnumbered 2:1 by the morons.

More than a little overwrought. There are many greater 'threats' than
Loopy Donald: off the top of my head, I'd make the India-Pakistan nuke
situation way up near the top.

She wanted to take out evil and she relished the fight. She was fine with killing the bad guys--no indecision or "the burden of having power." There's a certain pleasure in watching confident, pure heroes do their thing (same as with Captain America and Reeve's Superman), especially when it's done with some charm and warmth.

Well there was way too much clothing there. I prefer my Wonder woman in bikini.

She would have made a great Wonder woman in 1990.

Yes really beautiful. I like this better. This is from 1990. Fast forward to 14 minutes and 48 seconds. 10/10 look there.

I'm sure he'd prefer Stan over Andy.
 
You're clearly panicking about Rafa already. Will he stop Federer in the
final and crush your heart?

I don't see Federer locked in the final, he is 36, and djokovic is waiting, plus he can have a bad day.
 
I watch one match a time, hopefully he is the final to lose to nadal in str8 sets as Whisper said.
