    Take The Five

    ★★½

    A video-editor once told me that the best in his game go unnoticed and unappreciated as they successfully polish turds. Well, Connor Griffith is clearly a highly skilled and imaginative editor, but still, he can’t be the best at his craft, because no amount of cutting to catchy ragtime can hide the fact that passenger window footage of the 5 is mind numbingly boring. A failed experiment in turb polishing.

    My 4 year old daughter loves this movie. It’s the highest compliment of my parenting I could hope for.

    ★★★★

    A weirdly insidious and simplistic binary of happiness and sadness, where joy wins not through hugs and good will, but through drowning, force feeding and bombing. Prime material for film school analysis. If there isn't already a paper on this, there needs to be one.

    Being an adult is the pits. I spent today in a policy meeting, mediating a beef between two of my sales staff, and researching how to increase my credit score. But then I stumble across something as playful and delightful as this and suddenly I want to bust out a pack of markers and shamelessly doodle for the first time in decades!
