    Uncle Howard 2016

    ★★★★½ Added

    This film is epic, in a good way. What you see here is a nephew who loves his uncle and honors him in the best way possible. He honors him by showing him with his family, showing him with his lovers, shows him during his work, filming and showing the work he produced, and during his last days. During the Q&A Aaron, the nephew and director, shared a quote from Howard with us, “There’s so much beauty in the world,…

    The Fits 2015

    The buzz about Anna Rose Holmer’s The Fits is true, this is a Sundance gem. If you love movies, filmmaking, you will highly appreciate this film. A Q&A always helps me appreciate a film more, especially when the director is so passionate about the film and filmmaking in general. But even if there was no Q&A I’d rave about this film. The attention to detail, the story, the cinematography, the subject matter, the characters, the score, the sounds, and the location. Nothing was wasted in the making of this film, and this is one to go see when it’s in the theatres. Gem.

But when you think about how close this scifi film shadows our reality, it will scare the shit out of you. I got goosebumps at the end and felt the brilliance of Alex Garland, this film got the full 5 stars, looking forward to what's next for Garland :)

    This film I now the most relate to in terms of relationships. How perfect looking at the dysfunction of being normal and how best to let go and live. This film is beautifully expressed through a graphic designer's (Ewan McGregor) eyes through photographs, drawings, and spray paint. Christopher Plummer is perfection in his role as a gay activist coming out late to the party and making up for lost time. Melanie Laurent and Ewan McGregor are beautifully vulnerable. This film…
