    I am an incredibly devoted, passionate Monkees fan and even that is a massive understatement. However, what made me a fan of The Monkees in the beginning was not the show or even really the music. Instead, I was captured by the history of this group of guys who had to fight accusations of not being real musicians and try to assert their identity in everything they did. I was fascinated by this television band that went on to create…

    This is my first Coen Brothers film (I know, I know!) and I am sold. I have so much I want to say about this, I had to sleep on it before I even attempted it, and I still don’t trust I’m going to hit it all, but we’re giving it a shot.

    One of the greatest moments in all of cinema is when Marius Goring looks at the camera and says “one is starved for technicolor up there.”

    This is a review I wanted to get right. I wanted to write something profound, something that could maybe even begin to capture the rush of emotions I felt watching this, sitting in with the four guys who made up the most legendary band of all time for eight hours. Yet when the time came to try and capture those feelings, I couldn’t.

    Overwhelming. That is the one word I keep coming back to to describe Get Back. Overwhelming in…
