  • A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

    A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night 2014

    ★★½ Watched 18 Jul, 2015

    Let's get out of Bad City.

    What do you think?

    Easily the best black and white Iranian film about a skate boarding female vampire you'll see this year.

  • Apollo 13

    Apollo 13 1995

    ★★★★ Rewatched 18 Jul, 2015

    What a great story.

    As they approached re-entry Mr 8 asks me: "Do you know if they make it back?"

    I mean, they did the first two times I watched this movie, but I was still on the edge of my seat.

    Gene Krantz is my hero.

  • 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. 


  • Upstream Color

    Upstream Color 2013

    ★★ 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.
