  • Inside Out

    Inside Out 2015

    ★★★★★ Watched 09 Nov, 2015

    Beautiful. Clever. And, sad (in a good way).

    Only one thing that was confusing: why were Riley's fear and anger boys?

    Pixar really missed a trick by not calling this Joy Story.

    "Let me ease you off the shit / shoot mountain, captain"

    Star studded, for sure.

  • Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police

    Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Dec, 2014 2

    The rise and demise of The Police as told through the lense of Andy Summers, the guitarist and probably lesser known of the three band members. 

    This is the sort of documentary that I could watch all day and all night and into the early hours of the morning and contemplate rewatching the next day.

    The story of his relationship with his wife and family, which is woven through, is heartbreaking. 

    I'd like to see more of his photography. What an awesome record and memory. I imagine him getting lost in that archive for days.

    ★★ Watched 20 Jan, 2014

    96 mins is a long time to feel as lost as I found myself watching this.

    This film sounds amazing. Shut your eyes.
