  • Interstellar 2014

    ★★★★ Rewatched 16 Nov, 2014

    What do we do with INTERSTELLAR? Take it with a comet-sized grain of salt, I suppose. Some of the best scenes of the year ("Play from the beginning") mingle with a few of the worst (any time TARS is offered as a comic foil) and similarly wildly varying performances (Hathaway's best since RACHEL GETTING MARRIED; Lithgow wantonly wasted.) Holds up way better on second viewing than I might have imagined. Nolan's films are going to look pretty fabulous in 20 years or so. 'Til then we can cock our heads a little bit.

    ★★★½ Watched 03 Nov, 2012

    GAFFE SQUAD: At the Canadian Embassy, there is an insert shot of a needle dropping on the *middle* of a record, and then Led Zeppelin's "When the Levee Breaks" plays over the scene. In fact, that song is the last song on the record, so the needle should have been dropped further toward the center of the record. GOTCHA AFFLECK!!!

  • Smoke 1995

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 28 Jul, 2013 2

    Laid back 90's Miramax anything-goes-ness. Written by Paul Auster. Tom Waits songs. Keitel. William Hurt whisper-talking. Stockard Channing in an eye patch. Smoking, talking. Dog Day, Spike Lee, This. New York on film beats the ever-living shit out of actually being in New York. One of my favorite endings of any film.
