Thousands of Kurdish refugees have crossed the border into Turkey to avoid the threat of ISIS occupation in Kobane, Kurdistan/ Syria, fleeing the imminent attack by Islamic State militants who have seized dozens of villages close to the border and are advancing on to Kurdish towns.

The refugees were forced to wait for several days in Tal Abyad while Turkish authorities considered their fate. The border was opened around Friday noon.

About 60,000 Kurds have crossed into Turkey in the past 24 hours, a deputy prime minister said on Saturday.

my god these people were just trying to live their lives I’m so furious

Anonymous: As much as Gillian stole the show and as much as I thought Vanessa Kirby did a great job, I was not that impressed with Ben Foster as I thought I would be. I don't know what it was that bothered me but his lack of facial expressions ruined his character for me. He came across too stoic. Maybe I'm used to people who use their arms/hands when they talk but his lines were delivered with not as much passion as should have been. IMHO.


I can’t comment TOO much on this because again, I haven’t seen the thing in its entirety yet, but from what I saw, I actually feel the opposite. I enjoyed Ben very much, especially in the scene where he was confronting Blanche about how she was never fooling him with her lies. 

On the other hand, I found Vanessa distracting. I thought she generally did a good job, but her inability to keep her accent consistent took me out of the scenes she was in. When she was quiet, it was fine, but when she had to get louder or more passionate, her accent would slip and never get back to where it should be. Minor complaint, though.

I found Ben Foster’s Stanley not threatening enough — I thought he moved well and felt animalistic at times, but his tone was so good-natured overall, even when he was mocking Blanche, that I didn’t feel him as a constant threat. It might be that I’m so used to thinking of that character as sullen and intense. When he snapped, it was scary, but it seemed to come out of nowhere.

You know how I would love you if you wrote duchovny/anderson

WELL THERE IS AN INTRIGUING IDEA. I have actually been rewatching XF lately because I’m listening to Kumail Nanjiani’s podcast about it,…



I’ve had to reschedule my viewing of Streetcar from 10/13 to 10/18. I know this is a long shot, but does anyone in the Madison, Wisconsin area want two tickets to the 10/13 viewing? I’d gladly send them to you or anyone you know who might use them.
