    There Will Be Blood

    ★★★★★

    The opening 15 minutes is the best silent film ever. The ending is my favorite final scene. The score is ear candy. Daniel Day-Lewis and Paul Dano rock the fucking camera like no other foes.

    Congratulations to Paul Thomas Anderson for creating a masterpiece that will not be replicated any time soon.

    Brokeback Mountain

    ★★★★

    Bi-erasure is calling Brokeback Mountain the “gay cowboy movie”.

    “Bisexual erasure or bisexual invisibility is the tendency to ignore, remove, falsify, or reexplain evidence of bisexuality in history, academia, the news media, and other primary sources.” - Wikipedia

    Since the movie came out, I’ve heard from homophobic people, allies, and those in the LGBT+ community that it’s about two gay cowboys. Or two cowboys who find out they’re gay. Whatever the description, it’s always “gay” or “homosexual” that are brought…

    Tom Petty, Somewhere You Feel Free

    ★★★★★

    “I was in love with a girl on LSD… everybody can relate to that.” - Mike Campbell

    I don’t feel like I can give an objective review to a film about the making of maybe my favorite album of all-time. It was fun to hear Tom and the boys talk about the album. Rick Rubin gives a lot of insight on the album.

    If you dig Tom or Wildflowers, you’ll love it.

  • The Harder They Fall

    The Harder They Fall

    ★★★½

    If you know me, you know I love westerns — or revisionist westerns, to be more specific. Nearly as large is my love for Lakeith Stanfield. This beautiful man was placed on this earth to spread joy and happiness — and all he needs to do is simply look into a lens. Honestly, the same could be said about Zazie Beetz. I’ll watch anything either is in. When they’re in a western together, I’m not sure anything could live up…

    BlacKkKlansman

    Taken as it is, I’d say it’s like 3-3.5 stars. But films aren’t created in a vacuum, especially not when they’re “based on a true story”.

    Boots Riley (director of “Sorry to Bother You”, vocalist for The Coup) pointed out so eloquently that the real Ron Stallworth was a p.o.s., hardly a single thing in the movie is accurate, and the investigation into white supremacist groups actually stifled black revolutionary groups, not the Klan.

    Considering the volatility of police/race relations in the wake of Black Lives Matter, I’d think it shameful for Spike Lee to be involved in such a troubling film.

    It's Such a Beautiful Day

    Fuck. This movie. Ugghh.

    I applaud Hertzfeldt’s creativity and originality. God knows we could use more of that in cinema; especially in Hollywood. That’s why it pains me to say I didn’t enjoy It’s Such a Beautiful Day.

    I thought the animation style was familiar, and I was not surprised to see Hertzfeldt also did World of Tomorrow. That was a short that was difficult for me to even get through. So, a feature length film from the same director…
