  • Whiplash 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Oct, 2014

    This is no Mr. Holland’s Opus.

    Intense, surprising, worth seeking out in the theaters — and I say all that despite it conjuring up the combined horrors of being in high school jazz ensemble (ew) and my one week at the Stanford Jazz Workshop — one of the more humiliating, stressful weeks in my teenaged life.

  • A Brief History of Time 1991

    ★★★½ Watched 16 Nov, 2014

    No idea what it is exactly that makes the interview shots and setups so beautiful, but they are.

    Other surprises:

    — Oddly enough, this pairs well with Good Will Hunting as a double feature.

    — The Marilyn Monroe posters.

    — “And he goes dashing about all over the place.” — Stephen Hawking’s mom on Stephen Hawking.

    Vintage Errol Morris — charming, fascinating, puzzling, mesmerizing. Glad that it's available again and in HD (Criterion on Hulu).
