  The Joker, directed by Todd Phillips and starring Joaqin Phoenix, is set in the late ’70s New York. From the opening shots the director of photography, Lawrence Sher, recreates the look of the era with tremendous attention to detail.  I felt more than a hint of nostalgia for the 70's film...

Sitting in the rear of the parking lot, the groan of the generator powering the large Army simulator can be subtly heard from the main entrance to the school.

My First Day in BHS

The first moment I stepped into Biddeford High School, I realized that it smelled like Campbell’s chicken noodle soup and deodorant. Soup, because there was a weird smell wafting into the hall from the cafeteria; deodorant, because I accidentally ran into the arm of a guidance counselor who was try...
