  • The Sicilian Clan

    The Sicilian Clan 1969

    ★★★★½ Watched 29 Mar, 2015

    Elements such as class and (fashion) style are hard to come by in modern cinema, but this movie just can't help itself. There's so much imagery to revel and it's presented with a natural elegancy; so insanely cool. I still can't believe how flawless the print I saw was.

  • Rushmore

    Rushmore 1998

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 25 Mar, 2015

    First time theater-re-watch since I first saw it in 1998 at the old Arbor. My favorite Wes Anderson movie is Life Aquatic, mostly because it's his most whimsical and in my opinion, heartfelt. That being said, this resonated with me more emotionally than it did back in 1998, when it felt a little cold. Watching it now, it's a real classic.

    The Claudia Jennings show! It's almost as if she is acting in a different movie, a better movie. This movie though has a lot to offer, really lively cinematography, an excess of 70's flair, and a lot of charm. For all the goofy voice-over work and fun montages set to 50's Rock N' Roll, there are at least 3 dramatic scenes that really illustrate Jennings' chops. All in all, this is a really charming movie.
