    Female Trouble

    ★★★★

    A campy, mean spirited tone poem of inhumanity, debauchery and grotesquery. 

    It’s a trashterpiece that spawned an era of trash cinema. It dons that crown proudly. 

    John Waters was obviously breaking down boundaries to release a film with content like this in the early 70s. Hell - it kind of shocked me even now 40+ years later. He wasn’t just breaking down the boundaries, he was demolishing them with a wrecking ball. And in the process, he was crafting a…

  • Mirror

    Mirror

    ★★★★★

    Recalling memories isn’t always the easiest thing. We don’t always remember the most specific details in regards to time or location. But they always seem to leave a specific flavor in our mouths, or a specific scent in the air.

    Memories, just like Tarkovsky’s films, are oftentimes meant to be “felt” more than they are meant to be “understood” on a logical level. Tarkovsky took the near impossible feat of conveying the language of memories and created a perfect piece…

  • Damnation

    Damnation

    ★★★★

    I suppose that's what damnation is.
    The pieces of your life never to come together.

    A viscerally nihilistic tone poem of passion & despair.

    By far my favorite of what I have seen from Tarr. 

    Sátántangó - here I come!

  • Spring Breakers

    Spring Breakers

    ★★★★★

    To quote John Waters, who sums this up perfectly:

    “The best sexploitation film of the year has Disney tween starlets hilariously undulating, snorting cocaine, and going to jail in bikinis. What more could a serious filmgoer possibly want?“

    Not much more needs to be said than this. Spring Breakers is my favorite Korine film by far - and my favorite to revisit, partially due to the fact that it was shot in my hometown. 

    Not only is it a scathing commentary on…

  • Blue Valentine

    Blue Valentine

    ★★★★★

    This movie will probably forever hold a spot in my top ten favorite films. I believe Blue Valentine is the most authentic film ever made that details the blossoming and slow degradation of love. I have never seen a film so unflinchingly realistic in terms of character dynamics and chemistry. It is easily the best performances I have yet to see from Gosling and Williams. Cianfrance edits this film masterfully by cutting between the early days of romance where hope…
