American Sniper, Black Hat.

American Sniper is in a race for Oscar recognition. The film has garnered some accolades and some criticism. Too much Americuh, for some, but Robert finds that director Clint Eastwood brings us a fairly neutral editorial stance. So there is room for many interpretations.

Then there is Black Hat, an odd romp through the surveillance culture and the cyber-warfare. But mostly, it’s kinda goofy.
