  • Word Is Out: Stories of Some of Our Lives

    Word Is Out: Stories of Some of Our Lives

    These are my heroes. What a wonderful slice of history. Beautiful, matter of fact, and wholly affirming.

  • Young Adult

    Mavis Gary is horrible and I LOVE her.

  • My Left Foot: The Story of Christy Brown

    My Left Foot: The Story of Christy Brown

    Imagine how horrible this could have been without the genius of Daniel Day-Lewis.

  • The Company

    The Company

    ★★★★½

    Ballet dancers are f-ing amazing and so is Robert Altman.

  • One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

    ★★★★½

    Powerful ending to an incredibly entertaining film. The supporting cast was outstanding and Nicholson was at his absolute best. I feel inspired to shake things up and question authority! Wait, I don’t need an excuse for that...

  • Rewind

    Rewind

    ★★★★½

    We take the power back when we share our stories. We break the cycle by refusing to be silent. I want to express my gratitude to everyone who made this film.

  • The Godfather

    The Godfather

    ★★★★½

    How have I never seen this movie before today? 
    Well, probably because I actively avoided it. lol
    Like two hundred too many people told me how perfect it was and it turned me off. Plus, after watching Goodfellas, I was convinced I hated all gangster films. Which I may have still believed until today. But this film was f-ing great. Pacino was a total stud, Brando’s death is exactly how I wanna go, and now I understand about a million…

  • Harry and Tonto

    Harry and Tonto

    ★★★★½

    If a movie were my spirit animal, this would be it. An incurable case of wanderlust rooted in human connection with a fierce desire for independence and a cat who goes on walks. I took nearly the same journey once and I’d do it again.

  • Still Walking

    Still Walking

    ★★★★½

    Impressive. Delicate. Piercing. Magnanimous.
    Still trying to find the right words, but it is something special for sure.

  • The Conversation

    The Conversation

    ★★★★½

    Whoa.
    Drop the crowbar and calm the F down.
    This film is paranoia personified. Blinded by his desire to know the truth, teetering between genius and madness, a man finds himself engulfed by a cacophony of fear.
    What’s that sound? 
    It’s my jaw, dropping.

  • The Act of Killing

    The Act of Killing

    ★★★★½

    You really have to see it to believe it. People who get really upset by satire should watch this to understand what actual offensive behavior looks like. That being said, I did find myself letting out a few chuckles because in addition to being mass murderers these men are also a little ridiculous.
