    Synecdoche, New York

    ★★★★★

    Synecdoche, New York portrays life as experienced by a man in modern individualistic society. Born into mystery and finding no sense of destiny or explicitly evident meaning. The protagonist -an artist- must create his own meaning, his own statement of significance. Time races on as he struggles alone to get to grips with what is happening around him. As he tries to exert control over his circumstances he finds that he increasingly loses control and becomes ever more entrenched in…

    Paris, Texas

    ★★★★★

    Paris, Texas is one of the the absolutely very best films I have ever seen in my life so far, and without the complete participation of your emotions it would be an utter failure. Rather than a fault, this is an element of design crafted intentionally by the artists responsible for this film. If contemporary films were interpreted as formally as classic literature, then the plot surrounding Paris, Texas would be understood as nothing less than a post-modern Greek tragedy. Yet…

    Radiohead: In Rainbows – From the Basement

    ★★★★★

    It's crazy how they’ve been my favorite band since the first time I listened to High and Dry while I was watching The O.C. as a kid, and to this day they’re still my favorite band.

    A misunderstood masterpiece is the new way to call a film bad. L to The Wachowski Sisters. What will they do with The Matrix Resurrections? I don’t know, but my expectations are down low considering that trailer, their films from the past decade and the way they kinda fucked this franchise.

    I Am Sam

    ★½

    “Dustin Hoffman, 'Rain Man,' look retarded, act retarded, not retarded. Counted toothpicks, cheated cards. Autistic, sho'. Not retarded. You know Tom Hanks, 'Forrest Gump.' Slow, yes. Retarded, maybe. Braces on his legs. But he charmed the pants off Nixon and he won a ping-pong competition. That ain't retarded. He was a goddamn war hero. You know any retarded war heroes? You went FULL retard, man. Never go FULL retard. You don't buy that? Ask Sean Penn, 2001, "I Am Sam." Remember? Went FULL retard, went home empty-handed.”
