AT THE PRECIPICE

When I heard Robert Duvall speaking with Mike Huckabee last year about his film, “Get Low,” I knew it was my kind of movie.  It’s the story of a man who wants to throw his own “funeral party” while he’s alive and have people come and tell stories about him and is loosely based on […]
