    Raya and the Last Dragon

    Get me the phone number of the royal hairdresser of Fang.

    Swinging Safari

    OMG. The waterbed. The Para pool. The baby oil. The booze. The overflowing ashtrays. The video camera. The bikes. The blue light disco. The fireworks. The backyard stunts. The existential angst. The wigs. The shorts. Togs togs togs. The sweet pain of recognition. Fucking genius final scene.

  • The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

    The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

    Never a bad day to watch a cock in a frock on a rock. Nice night for it, too. 

    Contains absolutely Australian levels of drinking. Adam is a little shit. I love him, but he’s also an excellent ad for the dangers of deadnaming. Soundtrack by Mushroom Music: RIP Michael Gudinski.

  • The Mole Agent

    The Mole Agent

    More geriatric spy dramas that expose how patriarchal religious structures condemn unmarried, childless women to a life of loneliness, please.

  • Juliet, Naked

    Juliet, Naked

    Unapologetically a “taking my mind off the latest lockdowns” lazy comfort rewatch. I enjoy how scruffy everyone in this film is.

  • Attack of the Murder Hornets

    Attack of the Murder Hornets

    ★★★★★

    Honey bee farmers farming! Scientists sciencing! Murder hornets decapitating! A robotics expert expertly experting! A great Canadian fully Canadianing his Canadian heart out! An unexpected Rhys Darby voice cameo! Funny, dramatic, beautifully filmed, great character studies, and a top soundtrack—a film that gets better with each passing minute.

    As American as stories come, and the best Covid-era film so far: masked heroes, very stressed public officials, delayed government funding, neighbors helping each other out, and a wild twist involving a potato farmer.

  • I Care a Lot

    I Care a Lot

    Needed several nips and tucks to make it the slick, racy, antagonistic satire it wants to be.

  • Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar

    Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar

    In the past week I have seen two films in which Jamie Dornan sings so 2021 is delivering.

    Days of the Bagnold Summer

    Sweet film.

    It's a Sin

    ★★★★★

    “To live in hearts we leave behind, is not to die.”—Thank you Russell T. Davies for keeping these beautiful men alive in this way; for deploying all the very best tools of the television trade to remember them.

  • Test Pattern

    Test Pattern

    So grateful to Shatara Michelle Ford for her clear-eyed, nuanced, non-hysterical storytelling. She and her cast have balanced so much: trust, confusion, terror, the vagaries of friendship, the criminally awful health system, the joy of a new job, deep romance... what a debut.
