    “The horror of the world hides behind these infinitely pretty things”

    When am I going to learn to stop judging films by the poster? When your feature debut is a monumental work of art like Son of Saul, as is the case with László Nemes, I’m going to watch your sophomore effort no matter what it is. Between Sunset’s poster, a woman in early 20th century garb, and it’s horribly vague and inaccurate imdb tagline (“a young girl grows up…

    “We got him Dirk…we got him”

    Thanksgiving is for watching masterpieces with the family. Easily one of the greatest films ever made, with one of the best screenplays ever written. A tale of friendship, love, betrayal, and forgiveness that would make Tommy Shakespeare himself jealous. Oh yeah…and it’s funny.

    "I love you, but you don't know what you're talking about"

    Bergman's The Virgin Spring is the next movie on my watch list, but after a long day and still reeling from Cries and Whispers I certainly did not have the energy to attempt that one. Wes Anderson is my all time favorite filmmaker, and Moonrise Kingdom is in his top three movies for me, but I didn't realize how perfect this movie is until tonight. Perfection through and through,…
