Re: “'Sand Castle' unpacks Operation Iraqi Futility

From an Iraq War combat veteran: No. There wasn't much there that felt very authentic, and certainly nothing "cathartic" or "comforting". This was a paint-by-number rendition devoid of depth. Worse, the film appears to have somehow confirmed your own flawed preconceived notions about what it was like or what it meant. This film was bland and instantly forgettable. While you're waiting for THE film about the Iraq War, for God's sake READ the multitude of authentic accounts. There are a lot of great books out there, and they can certainly help inform any future reviews you might tackle.

Re: “The International Wildlife Film Festival remembers founder Chuck Jonkel

It's my great pleasure and honor to have known Chuck Jonkel; and I can honestly say that having had the opportunity to go with him on one of his trips to Churchill, Manitoba to watch polar bears was one of the high points of my life. "Amazing" is a much overused term, but I can't think of any other word that better describes Chuck.

RIP, Chuck; you'll be long remembered.
