Movie of the Year: 1973
The Last Detail
This week we discuss The Last Detail! Can we swear this is our 1973 Movie of the Year?
The Last Detail is a movie about three sailors, who are on their way to deliver one of the trio to jail. But thanks to some clever thinking ahead, they are able to secure a little time for a boys trip! Now we know here at Pop Filter that nothing is more sacred than a boys trip.
Thankfully, The Last Detail is a movie that understands the sanctity of dudes being dudes being dudes being dudes. We got ourselves a little drinking, a little underwear semaphore, a bit of fighting marines (booo) in a bus stop bathroom, and even a little trip to the old cat house.
Along the way, the boys tour more than just the eastern seaboard, they explore the depths of masculinity, individuality, and duty in the world that may be corrupt and ridiculous, but ultimately must be obeyed. The last detail aims to tell a story that is not grand or sweeping or epic, but instead is quiet small yet somehow perhaps still epic.
Abortion is healthcare
While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.
The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.
Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.
Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.
