Yoko has always been her own woman before , during and after John, And she was a woman in love with and very much loved by John Lennon.

"(Dis)Honesty - The Truth About Lies" -

See for FREE on CNBC...........
  • From ticket-fixing in our police departments to test-score scandals in our schools, from our elected leaders' extra-marital affairs to financial schemes undermining our economy, dishonesty seems to be a ubiquitous part of the news. But it's not just true in the headlines - we ALL cheat.

  • '(Dis)Honesty - The Truth About Lies' is a documentary feature film that explores how and why people lie. The film is anchored in behavioral experiments that measure our propensity to lie - sometimes even unknowingly. On a more personal level, from little white lies to devastating deceits, people share on camera the true stories of lies they've told. Experts examine the reasons behind our behavior and the implications of our dishonesty. Behavioral scientist Dan Ariely brings these elements together and guides us in discovering the complicated truths about lies.

MAD MAX Fury Road: What is there not to love?

"MAD MAX Fury Road: What is there not to love? A one armed female hero with no gender expression problems, a Max who has perfectly internalized the steel silence and vulnerability of Randolph Scott and Cary Cooper, more sand storms than Lawrence of Arabia, Four pregnant Priscillas in desert distress, a posse of old dykes on bikes to the rescue,  almost dialogue free(!)  a soundscape that pays homage to a live performance of a Metallica-like art composition.. ..... and under all the noise, visual stimulation and nerve wracking battle scenes is a critique on oil dependency, privatization of water and a woman's right to control her body.  I kid you not!   Remember Babe? the lovable pig movie?  same director George Miller.  Go .... better yet sneak in!"
