Off-Line

Sorry guys, I'm riding around reporting today. The house is yours. Be cool.

Oh, and I just saw that Blindside trailer again. I think part of the problem is a structural one. The movie really seems centered on Sandra Bullock's character. Having read the excerpt, but not the book, I didn't get the sense that she was the protagonist. She was a very important character, but the story felt a lot more collective. At the time, the Times Magazine literally had a cover with all the people, black and white, who'd made Oher possible. Mass market movies just tend to be more reductionist.
