    1:39 I see I was not the only one who was touched by Interstellar. Very few times have I ever cried while watching a movie, but damnit that one sure got me good.

    Thatcher was needed at a time of corrupt unions holding the public hostage.

    LOL,,,you guys think this portrayal of these psychopaths are real?.
    propaganda has a two fold effect,,fool fools and give moral cowards all the excuse they seek.
    these theatrical portrayals are designed to distort history, like Obama's books are designed to rewrite history to get him off the war crime hot seat.

    I’m just discovering Russell beyond the jackassery of some of his films. One has to admire his apparent intellect, command of language, and presence of mind on these YouTube videos. I’m a moderate conservative and am aware of precious few leftists that are able to engage in a level-headed discussion about politics and other issues of the day. Impressive, Russell.

    I love it too. Of course it’s fiction based on fantasy, but it is in good taste. I really love season 4 because I was a little kid when Lady Diana came to the Royals. I grew up watching her go about her business over here in the United States. We lived in a small town with no culture so watching The Royals in the news was something different from what I was used to. ❤️

    what a wonderful review of The Crown. Really enjoyed listening to the truth about how much trueness is in fact, in this series. Thanks for the perspective.

    Totally agree with Russell. Superb acting by every cast member , fiction with snitches of fact giving dignity-to the crown

    Great perspective and analysis of The Crown Russell! 👍Although I think you are being too kind when discussing the character of Thatcher. She was a ruthless and cold blooded tyrant who supported apartheid in South Africa and brutal dictatorship in Chile. Being strong willed and sure of herself did compensate for her lack of compassion and humanity at home and abroad but actually compounded it. That aside You have illuminated to me why I'm so hooked on it and introducing Foucault into your argument was the icing on the cake! In terms of sacrificed beautiful iconic women don't forget Marilyn Monroe, who like Diana was sacrificed for messing with the highest level of male power.
