    contrary to others here, i don't think this movie is about how we get to choose our family.

    The Gleaners and I

    ★★★★★

    a heart-shaped potato pulled from the dirt.

    varda combines the political and the pleasurable. compared to her nouvelle vague contemporaries, she's on the right side of the right conflicts. and pushes us towards new possibilities we have yet to explore. godard is just dead ends.

    this movie is the definitive example.

    Blowin' Up

    ★★★★

    This should be required viewing for all citizens 

    A balance between an institutional film (a courtroom) and series of character portraits (sex workers, and women who are trafficked and exploited, and the women who work to support them).

    It doesn’t shy away from complexities, darkness, exploitation, economics, compassion, and friendship.

  • High Life

    High Life

    ★★★★

    Vividly induces the hypnotic experience Bathes describes in Leaving the Movie Theater.

    A shipping container in space full of dogs in heat. But noble Robert Patterson refuses to masturbate.
