Cartel Land

Cartel Land: Cinematic & luridly entertaining documentary. Incredible access is wasted by director's inability to explore the complexities.

#Djokovic now in full-on #Serena mode! Sigh...at least #Federer's end will not be a flameout, but a pleasant, slow descent. #GOAT #Wimbledon

ESPN "Parts Ways" With Olbermann

Tweet from Victor Wondu

I've actually started to change my opinion about Sharapova and that horrendous shriek. She's a good sport and fights hard.

Serena Beats Sharapova (Again) 2015 Wimbledon

Always good to see #Serena thrash the insufferable/poor-sport #Sharapova. #SerenaSlam not a done deal yet #Muguruza will be tough #Wimbledon

The Look of Silence

The Look of Silence: Less sensationalistic, but perhaps even more powerful, than companion piece Act of Killing. Unforgettable and chilling.

Federer Wins To Set Up Andy Murray Semis Wimbledon 2015

Great win for #Federer today, but he's gonna need all his #GOAT powers against #Murray (who's back to #OurAndy now that he's playing well)!

Love & Mercy

Love & Mercy: Wonderful, non-standard biopic that makes me see the Beach Boys in a whole new light. Great directing, acting (Dano!) & sound.

Federer Beats Bautista Agut 2015 Wimbledon

Suspiciously easy win for #Federer vs overmatched #Agut. He'll need a repeat of #GOAT-like performance against tricky-awkward #GillesSimon.

Federer Beats Groth 2014 Wimbledon

Un-#GOAT-like hiccup for #Federer vs #Groth! (the ! should just be part of his name!) but through to Week 2. Bad luck for #Isner & #Dustin.

Federer Beats Querrey Wimbledon 2015

Sure the tweener-lob was un-#GOAT like (but oh so much fun!), but solid win for #Federer vs #Querrey. PS. #Tennis needs more @DreddyTennis!
