- With the end in mind: amazing book, changed my understanding of death, has immediately quelled a lot of my anxiety about it.
- La comunidad (common wealth): rewatched it after many years, still a fun watch. Lots of great actors, playing a bunch of unhinged people.

- Judas and the Black messiah: absolutely excellent film, great cast and powerful story.
