  • Sylvie's Love

    Sylvie's Love

    ★★★½

    Tessa is captivating, as usual, but there is nothing remarkable about this movie. It was a nice family friendly watch with my folks.

  • The Twentieth Century

    The Twentieth Century

    ★★★½

    The art direction, costumes, hair and make up are out of this world wonderful. It’s was quite bizarre but difficult to follow what was actually happening.

  • Butt Boy

    Butt Boy

    ★★★½

    We can learn a lot from the little boy who said a prayer of gratitude from inside the rectum of a middle aged man before literally eating shit. That kid understands the meaning of life much more than I ever will. This gets an extra star for the most beautifully disgusting ending to film, ever. What joyfully perverse humor! I never miss a film recommendation from John Waters.

  • The Invisible Man

    The Invisible Man

    ★★★½

    Elizabeth Moss is acting her ass off in this movie. Too bad the premise is ridiculous AF.

  • True History of the Kelly Gang

    True History of the Kelly Gang

    ★★★½

    Full of Homoeroticism & Violence.

  • Mank

    Mank

    ★★★½

    It was beautifully shot and I do hope Amanda Seyfried gets some awards love, but it was a little too long and rambling for my taste.

  • You Don't Nomi

    You Don't Nomi

    ★★★½

    Showgirls will never die.

  • The Life Ahead

    The Life Ahead

    ★★★½

    This was just one sad thing stacked on another. Loren was wonderful, but the film lacked any drive. Probably because it wasn’t going anywhere.

  • On the Rocks

    On the Rocks

    ★★★½

    I’m underwhelmed. This would have been a total downer without the zany joy brought by Bill Murray, a few cute moments with Jenny Slate, and a funny cameo by a label maker.

  • Yes, God, Yes

    Yes, God, Yes

    ★★★½

    I wish we had heard that dial up internet sound at least once, it would have made the flashback to 2001 complete. I vividly remember bible camp and this movie got it right. Totally sweet movie, nothing profound, but worth it.

  • The Godfather: Part II

    The Godfather: Part II

    ★★★½

    I didn’t like this as much as the original. Obviously, it’s well made. It was more than a little long and just too much patriarchal bs for my taste.

  • Beanpole

    Beanpole

    ★★★½

    I just couldn’t get into it. And I’m super grateful for the subtitles because I could hardly hear anyone talking. It was an amazing use of green, quite beautiful.
