    Watched this today... Was excellent. Highly recommend.



    The Prince of Saudi Arabia is a bad person. The Dissident documentary about Shitty AMC Show of the Saudi journalist in Turkey was super sad, and tragic. However; before that became public knowledge, my wife is a consultant, and they actually did a consulting project for the Prince of Saudi Arabia for this museum he is building -- presumably, the one that the painting would be displayed in. Kind of cool. She was actually in a meeting with him iirc. She survived said meeting. I know she had meetings in the palace, and I'm pretty sure he sat through at least one of them. The palace security was weird. On random days people from her team were deemed a security risk and not allowed in meetings, and the people that were withheld varied from day to day. She was actually deemed a security risk one of the days, lol.

    My mom finally watched Dear Zachary after I told her to do so like five years ago. She's currently on the phone with my fiancee crying.

    It’s actually a really good doc. One of the best imo. But yeah it’s not exactly a pick me up.

    Wife and I enjoyed it

    kind of agree a crime wasn't committed. But couldn't it fall under fraud? They didn't mention that as a crime only rape, sexual assault, etc

    The Kingmaker on Amazon Prime. Solid political doc about the Philippines. Holy shit that place us a crazy political history. And it looks like Bong bong is about to be president so even more topical….

    I also know there's a lot of climbing doc fans on TMB. Thought about posting in the Alex Honnold thread, but went with this one.

    I agree.
    That's why it's so fascinating to me.

    Something that is clearly so morally and ethically wrong but not illegal. Are there any other crimes that compare? (I can't think of any)

    Michael Lewis (Moneyball, Big Short, several other good books) says he would walk by where this painting was on his way to school in New Orleans. Now it's on a yacht being destroyed by the salty air because MBS is embarrassed he got scammed. Had someone taken the painting prior to all the Da Vincification on Antiques Roadshow, it would have been one of the best appraisals in the shows history. You'd think Wahhabism wouldn't be cool with an image of Christ considering they view him as a prophet only surpassed by Muhammed.

    I watched the Anthony Bourdain doc this morning, I only tangentially followed his career but the doc was really good, really sad for him and his kids.
