  • Mother

    ★★★½

    I’ve been saying for years not to trust that black magic acupuncture madness- finally a little validation...

  • Walking and Talking

    Walking and Talking

    ★★★½

    There is just something about a Nicole Holofcener movie that sucks me in. It’s like you’re watching a train wreck and can’t look away, but at the same time, get the feeling everything is going to be okay. Catherine Keener is, how can I put this delectably, like a little snack in this one.

  • The War Room

    The War Room

    ★★★½

    “Little George” Stephanopoulos and James “the Ragin Cajun’” Carville sort of just BFF their way to getting Bill in office; some great footage them using political poetry to either pump people up or squash an affair story. I would like to see a similar movie with Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump about the 2016 election- possible names: “what’s a documentary? Oh, yeah, whatever is cool” “never thought we’d do it. No, seriously..” “D.J. And Eric do Washington”

  • Sanjuro

    Sanjuro

    ★★★½

    While watching the final scene the director and award winning editor, Akira Kurosawa, looked at each other with wide eyes as they slowly nodded their head(s) and, just then, a smile slowly appeared on the director’s face-he knew nailed it!
