    Niagara

    ★★½

    At the start of the year, I read Joyce Carol Oates’ Blonde and found it to be a monumental piece of work. Both as a deep-dive into the inner life and fate of Marilyn Monroe as well as a period of American cinema (and well also, a good hype-up for the upcoming adaptation).

    “I'm not going to waste my time arguing with a man who's lining up to be a hot lunch”

    Yesterday, I saw Jaws for the umptieth time and it struck me that it was not only a perfect movie, but also a perfect viewing.

    I don't exactly know why, but to watch Steven Spielberg's breakthrough yesterday was such a perfect fit. The pleasant breeze of the summer have just started to crawl in and the last few days have meant…
