    Come and See

    ★★★★½

    COME AND SEE is a film that stares you in the eye and begs you not to look the other way.

    Many are referring to the story of a young boy joining resistance fighters in Belarus against the Nazis as the most horrifying or terrifying film of all time, and I believe these sensational claims may be a disservice to the film.

    As audience members we don’t see the off-screen actions of all the slaughter, torture, rape, and destruction. What…

  • Greener Grass

    Greener Grass

    ★★★★★

    On the surface, GREENER GRASS is an absurdist surrealist satire of an overly saturated suburban life that glows around the edges. Where every adult wears braces and drives a golf cart. And some individuals generously give away their baby at a soccer match and love their backyard so much they turn their pool water into popsicles.

    The feature film debut from stars / writers / directors Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe made me cry from laughter four times, and brought…

    ★★★

    If DDC can go from indie darling with SHORT TERM 12 to international blockbuster, it gives me high hopes for what Chloe Zhao can pull off with THE ETERNALS.

    “Is this really all there is?” - Gawain
    “What else would there be?” - The Green Knight

    Only after you’ve accepted the inevitability of death are you able to conquer it and truly live.

    Well, I knew this film deserved a second viewing, so I went back to the theater after a couple hours of Wikipedia reading all about the themes, motifs, courtly romance, the knight’s code and Christian allegory in the poem that was adapted into the film.

    The Last Blockbuster

    ★★★

    How many levels of irony can you find? After a few decades of putting mom and pop shops out of business, the last Blockbuster is run by a mom and her family in this doc now streaming on Netflix.

  • I Care a Lot

    I Care a Lot

    Marla Grayson (Rosamund Pike) likes three things: making out with Fran (Eliza Gonzalez), sucking on a vape pen, and robbing innocent senior citizens of their free will and life savings.

    That sounds really fun, but this lacks the drama of GONE GIRL and the fun of BABY DRIVER so the thrill is gone because the characters are cold and calculating without being interesting or alluring. Nobody wins.
