  • Waves



    Too sad. Sorry 😐

  • The Holiday

    The Holiday


    A contemporary classic

  • Into the Woods

    Into the Woods


    Plot structure like Full Metal Jacket

    Perfect in every way 

    I thought I rented the other movie version. Turns out I stumbled into the better one.

  • Uncut Gems

    Uncut Gems


    me to the academy: BUZZ 'EM IN!!!

  • Varda by Agnès

    Varda by Agnès


    Always great to spend more time with Agnès

    But if you’ve just watched 5 of her films in the past year, including Beaches of Agnès, you might find this to be too familiar to be fresh.

  • Frances Ha

    Frances Ha


    sophie is one of the most iconic characters of the last 10 years.

    this movie is thematically in the same family as both elena ferrante's neopolitan novels (female friendship) and "my year of rest and relaxation" (20-something woman in nyc on a downward spiral)

    all the best moments were written by greta

    i hated this movie when it came out. it struck a little too close to home.

  • The Report

    The Report


    looking for more information on the story behind that impressive tsongkapa thanka in diane fienstein's office

  • Marriage Story

    Marriage Story


    worth it for the laura dern and alan alda performances alone

  • Meet Me in St. Louis

    Meet Me in St. Louis


    those little girls are diabolical. i love them.

    greatest old-timey "let's-go-back-to-my-place" line of all time: "would you mind accompanying me through the house while I turn out the lights?"

  • The Firm

    The Firm


    Incredible cast. Dumb ending.

  • Hugo



    Moral of the story: Every machine has its purpose

  • Honey Boy

    Honey Boy


    I liked the chicken

    Afraid I have the dad’s hairline
