In a laid back lazy Sunday afternoon conversation at the Scurv Sanctuary, we shared a wonderful conversation about actor Denzel Washington which started with his outstanding role in the movie "Flight" which focused on his character's fight with drug and alcohol addiction as well as his denial to face the fact that he had a huge problem.
We spoke on how society has evolved for the worst and where we stand as a people in the year 2014.
Interesting exchange indeed and we would love to hear your feedback, thoughts and comments to continue such an important dialogue.

How do you know you’ve made it big in Hollywood—we mean, really, really big? One measure would be when Denzel Washington stops over your house to help punch up your script. And for free, no less. So we can pretty much agree that Lee Daniels has arrived big time. In 2001, after an unlikely career that took him from nursing-agency owner to casting director to talent-agency owner, he produced Monster’s Ball, which won its star, Halle Berry, an Academy Award. Next he directed Precious, another Oscar darling, which snagged a statue for comedian Mo’Nique. Then came The Butler, co-starring Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey, which had uncredited assistance behind the scenes from one of cinema’s more powerful voices. “Denzel and I are friends and he was helping me with the sctipt,” Lee tells us. “I think we joked around about what would you do if you were playing the character? But at the time he couldn’t do it because he was unavailable anyway. Denzel is a dear friend of mine and he helped me incredibly with the story.”
Don’t tell Antoine Fuqua that Denzel Washington’s playing, well, Denzel Washington in their new flick together, The Equalizer. Instead, the director—who made his name making Denzel over as a bad boy in 2001’s Training Day—wants you to feel that his superstar collaborator is nothing more than a working stiff. “He’s reluctant hero. He’s a guy who has issues—OCD, post-traumatic stress, he can’t sleep at night. He’s not slick in any way,” Antoine tells Keeping It Reel with Film Gordon correspondent Wilson Morales. “When we did a dress rehearsal, and we were just tryin’ on shirts and stuff, he walked out and my cameramen were standin’ there waitin’ for Denzel and—literally—they didn’t know he’d already walked out was standin’ there waitin’ for us. They didn’t recognize him. He’s a cameleon.” The Equalizer, which opens Sept. 26, tells the story of a former black ops commando who faked his death for a quiet life, but comes out of his retirement to rescue a young girl.
