Jost (not the filmmaker Jon Jost), here's an intro to the material, from the YouTube page for the videos: "Jon Jost's presentation from 2007 Project on Law and Mind Sciences (PLMS) Conference. "System justification theory addresses the holding of attitudes that are often contrary to one's own self-interest and therefore contrary to what one would expect on the basis of theories of self-enhancement or

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.

Great movie, well written, well acted.  An interesting NYC experience.

Check out the movie at Netflix -
