    Ok then, crazy psychos can evolve and become an entirely entertaining experience. “Shirley” sounds intriguing and well worth watching. Thank you Robert for providing another outstanding commentary!

      Laural Park – crazy psychos? Really? So you call people with Alzheimer’s dumb? Stigma isn’t helpful. I was not aware any mental disorder was in her history and if there was, crazy psycho still does harm. Maybe you got that from the critic who said crazed weirdo and used variation of weird in his descriptions. Sensitivity and vocabulary exposure might be helpful. I have not seen the movie so I don’t know what was so weird about her behavior to warrant about the worst insult she could receive.
