    A Time to Kill

    Holy shit, how have I never seen this?!

    The cast is stellar (McConaughey in a strong lead role only three years after Dazed & Confused, Jackson heartbreakingly powerful, Spacey…there), & the content still frighteningly & disappointingly relevant almost thirty years later.

  • The Elephant Man

    The Elephant Man

    "Tis true my form is something odd, But blaming me is blaming God. Could I create myself anew, I would not fail in pleasing you. If I could reach from pole to pole, Or grasp the ocean with a span. I would be measured by the soul, The mind's the standard of the man."

    ~ Isaac Watts 1674-1748.

    I haven’t seen this film since I was a child, in the early 90s. It was shown very late on a weekday…
