    Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

    ★★★½

    What has always fascinated me most about this series is the subjectivity of its wonder. Our entry point to the wizarding world is Harry, an outsider in awe of it all, so it's all so very extraordinary, magnificent and, well, magical. But it's interesting to note how very ORDINARY it all is. Flying is super cool, but to Ron it's just a broomstick. The Phoenix headquarters being invisible, simultaneously taking up space and being completely non-existent on the physical spectrum…

    Dodd constantly refers to Freddie as an animal, but the truth is more revealing — their relationship is itself animalistic, an attraction of ego and urge and psychologically damaged impulses, of 2 men who find purposeful connection on opposite sides of the dynamic of addressing Freddie's traumas.

There are moments in Enter The Void that are graphically uncomfortable and shown through this observational perspective that heightens the discomfort, and they are so fundamentally necessary…

    ★★★★

    He is a renowned chef in an acclaimed restaurant. Behind him stands a young, flexible and capable team, whose scars are uncovered with the simple arrival of a health inspector before a particularly busy night. Then it's the doorman leaving his post, then a table of assholes harassing a waitress. Faced with the threat of the external, the pressure moves the group towards the swirling world of the personal. Everything flows, beyond the formal accuracy of that continuous uncut shot,…

    ★★½

    Five ladies walked into the showing late and spent a few minutes continually changing their seats and whispering loudly to each other. They finally got settled in, and then this kid started making noise. One of the women got up, walked over to the kid and told him to "please shut the fuck up." The kid's mom yelled at her and called her a "white trash bitch" and she yelled back and called her fat, and a major shouting match…

    Aaron Sorkin is way too good a writer to be forced to work with such a mediocre director as Aaron Sorkin
