Trump and Kim: Body Language

I love these body language analysis videos. So glad there’s one up on this latest summit.

I didn’t expect this conflict to just take two summits. I do hope one day there is peace between the two countries and that Kim makes the necessary changes to bring freedom and peace to his country and let it be part of the world.

She does say she doesn’t know why the summit would be in Hanoi. I think there was one other Asian country considered and Kim chose Hanoi.

I’ve been there and was surprised by how welcoming the people were to Americans. It seems that for the most part people have taken a “let bygones be bygones” approach to what they call the American War. (Cambodia’s the same. So’s Japan.) I attribute this to Buddhism and I suppose practicality.

As some commentators have said, Vietnam is a communist country, which does forbid religions and has a tight rein on social media, but there’s a lot of commerce. Life is comfortable as commercialism has brought prosperity.

Crowd Dynamics at the State of the Union

My favorite body language analyst covers the SOTU focusing on crowd dynamics. It’s an interesting aspect to the event that I haven’t seen others examine.

Kurosawa: Masterful Movement

I’ve watched this engrossing, enlightening YouTube video by Tony Zhou of Every Frame a Painting, three times. He makes it clear how much more absorbing a Kurosawa film is than your average Hollywood film often due to the masterful use of movement.

What’s more, I enjoyed spotting the films I’d seen: The Men Who Tread on the Tiger’s Tail, One Wonderful Sunday, I Live in Fear and Ikiro.
