  • Sense8: A Christmas Special

    Sense8: A Christmas Special

    ★★★★

    It's fitting that Sense8 should make it onto Letterboxd in some fashion because it's one of the only shows on TV right now that actually tells its story cinematically. Sure, prestige cable dramas of recent vintage have significantly beefed up their production values and become very slick and stylish, but the breathless critical claims that these developments have ushered in some kind of widespread "cinematic" renaissance in television are pretty erroneous. In truth, when it comes down to it the…

  • The Last Temptation of Christ

    The Last Temptation of Christ

    ★★★½

    Around 75% of this movie sailed straight over my Jewish kepi, so take this with a grain of salt, but guys....I'm pretty sure this isn't G-canon.

  • La La Land

    La La Land

    ★★★

    So thin and delicate that I'm sort of afraid to think about it too much because the whole thing will almost certainly fall apart at the slightest prodding, and I can't let that happen to a movie this pretty.

    Also I pretty much never wear a tie but my first thought as soon as the movie ended was "I need all of Gosling's ties." That's probably the level at which a movie like this is best enjoyed, and I think…

    End

    Oh my god this is so much better than Wes Anderson's train thing.

    Rat Life and Diet in North America

    Hell yeah, little guys. Eat the flag, freak out some squares, scurry to freedom in CANADA, start ORGANIC GARDENING. Oh no, little guys, don't get so into your ORGANIC GARDENING in CANADA that you lose sight of your revolutionary praxis!

    A delightfully sardonic allegory that starts out on the somewhat discouraging level of "we're like rats in a cage, man" obviousness only to suddenly and hilariously dart off in a much stranger direction. Also I know I say this a lot but this movie is Guy Maddin af.

  • Cat Food

    Cat Food

    Like "The Act of Seeing With One's Own Eyes" but for fish.

  • Mildred Pierce

    Mildred Pierce

    ★★★★½

    Joan Crawford vs. The Three Faces of Adam (Smith). Match of the century.

  • Gloria!

    Gloria!

    Frampton('s grandma) Comes Alive!

    Surprisingly, even adorably sentimental without losing any of that great paradoxical mixture of science-experiment rigor and avant-garde playfulness which marks Frampton's usual work. Turns out that underneath all the math problems and mind games H. Framps is a big 'ole softie at heart.
