  • Miss Juneteenth

    Miss Juneteenth

    ★★★★

    Channing Godfrey Peoples isn't nervous for what the critics have to say about MISS JUNETEENTH.

    At least, not as nervous as she is to hear from the people of the southside of Ft. Worth, where the writer/director set and shot her debut feature. The film, which won the Louis Black "Lone Star" Award at this year's SXSW Film Festival, is the beginning of what she plans to be a long career telling stories about Black Southern communities like the one…

  • The Two Popes

    The Two Popes

    ★★★★

    me in the first act: i am so much more intrigued by these two popes than i expected to be! such interesting cinematography! what a delightful use of abba!

    me for the rest of the movie: the two popes are in love. the two popes are going to fuck.

    the sexual tension was INSANE LMAOOOO LIKE????? the first time when one of them goes for a hug and the other goes for a handshake and they nervously laugh and say…

  • Rock Camp: The Movie

    Rock Camp: The Movie

    ★★½

    Music producer David Fishof’s seasonal Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp is exactly what it sounds like. Since 1996, Fishof has gathered casual music lovers together to forget about their day jobs, form rock bands, and live out their largest dreams for a couple of days. In light weight documentary ROCK CAMP: THE MOVIE, we follow a few of these proto-rock stars to Hollywood, where they’re coached by “camp counselors" like Paul Stanley, Roger Daltrey, Slash, and other legends of the…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    ahhhhhh. who was it all for, folks?

    idk. i am not a survivor of sexual assault, so i cannot speak definitively on this, but it doesn't feel like it's for them. as someone who does have to live in constant fear of being raped though, i will say it does not feel like it's for me.

    what do we gain in cassie's death? who needs to see a brutal, drawn out scene of suffocation to understand how hard it is…

    Farewell Amor

    ★★★★½

    hi friends! the coolest thing has happened! i have my first freelance piece up on the letterboxd editorial site!!!! this interview was so fun and i'm so grateful!!!
    ---

    There’s a subtle musicality central to the way Ekwa Msangi carries herself. She finds melodies in her words: “You hum the ‘m’,” she says when asked how to pronounce her last name. “Mmm-sangi.” And perhaps to a more subconscious degree, she speaks with rhythm, too: “I do think, and I know,…

    Holes

    ★★★★★

    my first holes viewing of 2021 😌 sarah hadn’t seen it yet and i obviously had to share!!!

    on this rewatch i’m thinking about how much compassion this story gives to its “criminals” by affording them their privacy. the d-tent boys ask stanley what he’s in for, and he tells them about stealing clyde livingston’s shoes even though we know he’s innocent. hector confesses to stanley that he’s the one who stole the shoes, and another pair the next day.…
