    Black Bear

    ★★★★★

    You’re really hard to read...” 
    Yeah, you know what, I get that all the time, but I actually think that I’m so easy to read that people just get confused and they make it harder on themselves.” 

    Black Bear is savagely primal. Aubrey Plaza’s performance is both captivating and horrifying. Christopher Abbott and Sarah Gadon delivery as well, but our lead is the lead for a reason. Plaza plays off the two of them in such an intense way that…

  • Little Women

    Little Women

    ★★★★★

    ‘What novelty is worth that sweet monotony where everything is known and loved because it is known?’ How great is that?” 

    I have a really difficult time fully and comprehensively articulating the emotional weight Little Women has begun to carry for me since I first saw it at the beginning of this year. It is truthfully unparalleled to any other film I’ve seen in the entirety of my life. This is the sixth time in a year that I’ve sat…

    Things Heard & Seen

    ★½

    If there’s one thing Taylor Sheridan excels at, it’s making me care about random men SO quickly into his films’ runtimes! Unfortunately(?) in the case of Those Who Wish Me Dead, the men I found myself caring for and engrossed with were the bad guys! 

    Beyond that feeling of joy I felt every time Nicholas Holt and Aidan Gillen came on screen, I found a good deal of Sheridan’s latest cumbersome. Angelina Jolie’s character really rubbed me the wrong way early…

    Death to 2020

    The first of what will be decades worth of white men trying to cleverly joke about 12 months of never ending global trauma. I am already tired of it.

    I hope Leslie Jones and Joe Keery made bank for being here.

    If this doesn’t end up being the best movie I’ve ever seen in my entire life, it is on sight for me and Mr. David Fincher. Mindhunter, I will avenge you. Goodnight, sweet prince.
