  • Paperman 2012

    ★★★★½ Watched 30 Jan, 2013

    Completely improved my day. Magical, classic animation -- really, truly gorgeous -- and unexpected development.

  • Shaun of the Dead 2004

    ★★★ Watched 29 Jan, 2013

    I *really* liked how this film played up the idea of anticipation-of-zombies. The first 15-20 minutes had multiple fake-outs, which I really appreciated. Of course, it was gory, a bit unrealistic, tongue-in-cheek. Clever, though. And hilarious. I enjoyed myself despite the fact that I have pretty low tolerance for gore. PROPS.

  • The Mirror 1975

    ★★★★½ Watched 24 Sep, 2012

    A beautiful stream of consciousness concerning war and family.

    I don't understand this movie, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate it. It was utterly intense, mystifying, haunting, and poetic. The shifts in lighting, from black-and-white to color, in time, in origin-of-footage were seamless and yet jarringly-so.

    Certain parts stand out in my mind--a boy on his sick bed, releasing a bird violently into the air. The boy's mother washing her hair. The voice-over: "Words are inert. They cannot express the emotions of the body." (Or something like that.)

    It was surreal.
