    The Empire Strikes Back

    This is a perfect example of what a sequel should do. The writers developed the characters. At first, I wasn't sure I liked Leia and Han's relationship because it seems like she gives in when Han forces himself upon her when they are trapped in the cave. But caves are symbolic of going deeper in the human psyche, something Joseph Campbell explored in his research. So I think Leia has this journey of realizing her feelings. As a leader, she…

    This film is so great! I love the focus on Sarah's identities as a mother and as an astronaut. This film did a great job at making me empathize with her struggles and successes in both these identities. I love the coloring of this film. I love how the premise is used in relation to the shots of nature and the mundane things in life because, knowing she won't be seeing them for much longer, I empathize how the things…

    Billy Crystal: 700 Sundays

    My favorite stand up show. Not only does it make me laugh, it makes me cry, and that’s special. This was the first time I was able to comprehend that feeling, back in high school.

    Save the Green Planet!

    I love the whacky, over the top style of this movie. The music is great, and it throws everything that's evil about humanity at you, and not until the credits start rolling do we see the good things we should be enjoying. I love how complex the main character is and sums up the experiment was subtly shocking, like an "aha" moment. It's hard to focus on the good things when the world is so terrible. Though the Prince might…

    Sound of Metal

    This is an excellent movie! I love how it uses sound artfully, and to represent this community. I love the themes: content with the silence, but also with life and how it continues to move as we figure out who we are in life. I love the message of finding home and how relationships are what define home, and the healing that is brought out of that struggle. Also love that little nod to Kiki's Delivery Service :) This is a very beautiful film!

    Monsoon Wedding

    This is such a good film. It's more than a typical romance film, and some parts could have been more. At first, I thought the father was an okay guy and that he loved his family. But as I got to know the family more, the father did not really know his family. But I'm glad he changed, putting his daughter first before his friend who helped his family financially but was continuing to prey on his daughters, as we…
