    Mrs. Doubtfire

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

    The current cultural era demands either flat, one-note characters or a solipsistic tight focus on the evolution of the moral eroding of a protagonist. Were it to be remade today, Mrs. Doubtfire would be a much different product. I'm thinking it would be better served as a limited series featuring a sociopath stalking his estranged wife and psychologically breaking down each of his children through prosthetically enhanced roleplay.

    In the vein of Dirty John, the remake would be a psychosexual…

    Concrete Cowboy

    Wonderfully cool subculture, and excellent acting, but predictable beats.

    Margaritas, tequila shots, 90s ballads, and chocolate baked goods as witchy prerequisites? Aside from magic, I'm a nearly a witch.

    A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

    "The first vampire movie in Farsi that you've ever heard of" is a more precise tagline. This Vice Media-Elijah Wood produced film was shot in California. Billing it as an Iranian vampire movie is a marketing stretch. But hey, Vancouver and Toronto substitute for US cities most of the time. It is fine that California substitutes for Bad Town, Iran. But stamping the entire production as "Iranian" seems disingenuous.

    As for content, AGWHAAN reminded me of Jim Jarmusch's 90s films…
