    On May 1, 1994, a woman wishes me happy birthday. Now I’ll remember her all my life. If memories ever come in a can, I hope that can never expires. If it has to have a shelf life, I hope it’s 10,000 years. 

    Hopelessly heartsick, unspoken feelings, wistful regrets of missed chances and unrequited love are things all too familiar for characters in a Wong Kar-wai film. It’s such a shame when you start falling in love that you don’t…

    “As I was leaving, I asked if he’d give me a ride home. I hadn’t ridden a motorcycle in a long time. Actually, I hadn’t been that close to anyone for a while. The road wasn’t that long and I knew I’d soon be getting off. But at that moment, I felt such warmth.”

    As each day goes by I realize I’m living in a Wong Kar-wai world. A world full of beautiful, lonely people longing for connection or just…

    The Hills Have Eyes Part II

    It seems a bit odd to honor Wes Craven on his birthday by watching a movie he has disowned, but the Arrow blu ray has been sitting on my shelf for over a year. Honestly, I expected worse. The Hills Have Eyes Part II is smelly, but it isn’t shit. The first movie isn’t even one of my favorites of Craven. What he got wrong with the sequel was turning it into a generic slasher with godawful characters. The story…

    Damn, this was SO much fun. Super clever, unique and an unexpected bloodbath! I almost wish I would’ve waited until my October marathon to view this. Perfect fall movie. File this under “comforting horror movies” please. Did I see a reference to The Thing when shit hits the fan at the end and the wax figures come to life? Honestly, a double feature of Waxwork and Cabin in the Woods would be pretty amazing. I think I’ve found a new favorite! Would recommend.

    Much like Godard’s Breathless, this left me speechless. I loved everything about Pierrot le Fou. The summer love, chaotic storytelling, thrills and avant garde style. An outlaw adventure, but give it that French New Wave twist. To pigeon-hole this film into one genre is not only impossible, but also does it a disservice. A film manifestation of a carefree spirit. Just let the spontaneity sweep you away and enjoy the ride.

    PS: Currently trying to find that amazing striped shirt Belmondo wore…

    “We don’t get a lot of things to really care about.”

    I’m glad I slept on this overnight. A meditative and melancholic look into loss, meaning, and ultimately the futility of life. None of these themes are groundbreaking. The fact that they are explored within this particular crazy plot is fascinating and quite brilliant. There are expectations put on our shoulders by society, other people and ourselves. You can keep chasing after this, but in the end it doesn’t really…
