A late summer sinus coded hit me upside the head this weekend. While I still managed to cut a small forest down in our side yard (a to-do list is a to-do list), Sunday was a feet-up chill day while binging on Netflix and a full backlog of Economist magazines.
Which brings me to the Sundance TV show “Rectify”. One of the best shows I’ve seen in a long while.
Rectify is slow-burning and intense examination of Daniel Holden, a man who sat on death row for 19 years (usually in solitary confinement), and his sudden release back into society.
It is a powerful show. Sometimes subtle, but full in its constant emotional pulls, Rectify can be challenging to watch through the constant blur of tears. Simply amazing.
Anyway, this weekend’s learning is centered on a poignant story.
