SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE by ingmar Bergman. Good lord. Supposedly swedish divorce rates soared after this 6 h series played on tv.

LE WEEK-END. Shorter, slightly less brutal, has some comic relief with Jeff goldblum at his most goldblumiest, as one critic said.

Where are the divorce reality shows on Netflix?

Why on earth would someone want to peer into other people's dysfunction? Are you looking for schadenfreude or a benchmark?

I certainly feel bad for all other married couples.

For decades, I had a mate who would turns heads anywhere we went. Yet I knew I didn't have to worry. I just enjoyed the attention.

As the years pass they've settled on our faces and bodies. We are no longer the prize of the party, yet I love her every bit as much as I did before.

This woman knows no limit. She has told me I have free reign. Do what I want when I want. And I have. In the past. I'm bored of doing that now and she knew that would happen. She knew there was nothing better out there and she was right. Kind of like a Yoko Ono in that respect.

I can say I want to do the wackiest thing and she'll say OK let's go. She knows I'll do her no harm. She totally trusts me and I totally trust her. That is a rare thing. Witness the divorce rate.

If she passes before me, I'll be a bachelor forever. She's raised the bar impossibly high.

I shake my head at her past boyfriends and their idiotic act of letting her go.

Kramer vs. Kramer was the highest grossing movie of 1979, and also won Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor.

1979 was an unusually bad year for American film however. The "big" movies that year that I saw I all disliked or at best were boring. Breaking Away was fairly good and that's it.
