    Don't Go Tellin' Your Momma


    What an incredibly original structure for a film.

    I’m so inspired by the way Jones is able to blend non fiction interviews that are arguably the most beautiful talking heads I’ve ever seen with short elaborate micro scenes that evoke so much emotion. The interviews themselves are also so powerful with personal anecdotes and intellectual reflections that distill entire systems of oppression.

    Mama reminded me that I had shown them this film last year and talked about making a documentary…

    Everything Everywhere All at Once


    Everything Everywhere All At Once is everything I hoped it would be and more which is astonishing because I actually had really high expectations going into it. 

    It arrives at a perfect moment in my life. I laughed, I cried, I loved it from start to finish.

    Let’s subtitle this and officially release the first Yonic film, with all its flaws, imperfections and the friendships that we built.

    We really made this film together and I love it for the process more than anything else.

    I love just how far this deviates from the film. The first episode did a great job of laying the groundwork for how everything would be different. The twists were crazy all due to some great writing! Not to mention the gorgeous animation. Scott Pilgrim really works as an anime! I also think that video games look and feel way cooler in motion picture format as opposed to actual video games, and this is a great example. The fights scenes were beautifully animated and everything in between including the opening reminded me of why I used to love anime.
