DIY Double Feature | TRUMBO & ONE, TWO, THREE | Blows, Blowing, Blowed

This DIY Double Feature is two Cold War films.

Watch TRUMBO first because it's slightly more heartbreaking than it is inspiring (just slightly), and so it might leave you feeling a bit defeated.  Like, no matter how talented and skilled you are, and even if you're...  well, right, you can still get totally fucked by the current events of your day.  And if that's the case, what chance do the rest of us commoners stand?

Watch ONE, TWO, THREE second, because it's like a feature-length political cartoon that plays a different aspect of the same era for laughs.  It never tries to tell you that things are anything less than fucked up, but it does seem to want to help you shrug it all off and enjoy your life...  no matter which way the wind blows over your days.

And, odds are, it will blow.
