Today we bring you a Movie Mole piece from our archives, a review by Joe Clement and Jan Haaken of the animated film, "Coco." In the summer of 2018, “Coco” screened in various parks around the city. It was also a very big hit in Mexico and around the globe. "Coco" is a visually rich tribute to Mexican culture, and a children's story that explores a range of themes: family, traditions, music, growing up, and love and death. In this review which originally aired on July 2, 2018 we include introductory comments by veteran Old Mole Clayton Morgareidge, who died over a year ago. With his introduction we are reminded of our dear departed comrade and how his spirit continues to guide us.
This year, if you can't find someone with a projector for a backyard screening, you can still find the film to watch for free online through the Multnomah County Public Library.
