No one has ever forced me to give a negative review of anything, no. WHO IS THIS ANYWAY.

Had to? I give my negative opinions freely.

Unfortunately, no, I’ve never been put in that position before. I’m not really required to review everything I see & also if I was to go to a screening of my friends’ film, I’d try to get out any responsibility to review it.

 ”This farmer, he had a big spread, and a lot of money. Whoever was sitting in a chair when he’d come around, why they’d stand up and give it to him. Wasn’t no harm in him. You’d give him a flower, he’d keep it forever.” -Linda
