    Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise

    This film absolutely shook me. Or actually, I should say Maya Angelou absolutely shook me, and the film brought her to me. Counting my lucky stars that I got to see this at the cinema and I just know I'll be convincing people to watch this for years to come.

    The Last Picture Show

    Saw this on a wrecked 35mm print, soundtrack barely audible, and the film broke halfway through the last scene between Sonny and Ruth. Seeing Anarene disintegrate on film that's disintegrating too, and then having the film die right before the film ends. Worked perfectly.

    Half Moon

    Ignore the terrible poster; this is exactly as wonderfully realized and intentional and visionary as the poster isn't. (edit: it's a different poster now!) Captivating from start to finish, genuinly laugh-out-loud funny, and darkly poetic like the Grimm fairytales before they were defanged and Disneyfied. A Kurdish 'klucht' where the political is personal. Highly recommended.

    Beautifully realised. The images, the soundtrack, the "heart" of it all. Looking forward to rewatching this and digging a little deeper into what it all means (to me).
