Marie Kondo’s tidying techniques have helped de-clutter many messy corners of one's home and now she takes this philosophy to various other spheres of one's life like relationship, work and community living to help people strike a balance. In this latest show on Netflix, we get a glimpse of not just Marie Kondo’s own home as she goes about her day but also how she helps people who feel burdened by their life choices. The three-episode first season shows Kondo reorganizing an organic garden centre owned by a father and son, helping set up a home office for a café owner and also guiding a woman in her signature gentle way to leave the past behind and move on. From physically exhausting shifting around to dealing with emotional baggage, Sparking Joy offers a more holistic view of Marie Kondo life philosophy.
With so much talk of Afghanistan dominating news these days it’s a good time to revisit this impressively made documentary that chronicles the chaos that unfolded during the 9/11 attacks. Directed by Brian Knappenberger it begins on the morning of that fateful day when the Twin Towers were attacked and the world changed forever. It then zooms out and takes us back to the time of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and how the Taliban enjoyed great US support. It ties up the present-day horror of the attack to the mistakes made which had far-reaching implications. The lack of a cohesive strategy, disillusionment and resentment that ultimately led to the resurgence of the Taliban has been deftly documented. If you seek a better understanding of the Afghanistan crisis this can prove to be very helpful.
The gang has been in the Bank of Spain for over 100 hours and the Professor is at risk. If you are a loyal Money Heist fan then this is enough to make you want to put everything else in abeyance and get on with the show. The first five episodes of Part 5 are now streaming on Netflix and the next instalment is due on December 3. The Professor (Alvaro Morte) was apprehended by Alicia Sierra, the pregnant inspector, played by Najwa Nimri. The fourth season ends with a new rendition of Bella Ciao, as Alicia points a gun at the professor. The trailer has prepared us for a war between the gang members and the military station outside the bank while the Professor is at Alicia's mercy. This definitely warrants that we Netflix and chill!
