Two notes on self-constraint

Note one, cinematic: Maybe you should not bother about the white elephant called the Aviator. In the second half, after (magnificent) Kate Blanchet is seen no more, the film becomes increasingly convoluted and symbolic. Jod thinks Scorsese should lose the big budgets and try to constrain his angst within a smaller scale, smaller themes and spaces — like in 'Raging Bull', the 'Taxi Driver', and the like.

Note two, to self: Complaining about the Outpost in the presence of Jod only makes things more difficult for both of us. I should constrain myself to only whine here.
