  • Goodbye Uncle Tom

    Goodbye Uncle Tom 1971

    ★★★★ Watched 04 Oct, 2015

    "Whether it's good or bad, you're never going to forget it." - Nicolas Winding Refn
    "FAREWELL UNCLE TOM is legit one of my favorite movies, and I would say 90% of humans should never see it." - Devin Faraci
    "The fact that this film could find a booking in a legitimate motion-picture theater is depressing." - Roger Ebert

    Horrifying, dangerous, and depressingly relevant in the era of Ferguson and the great flag debate. It challenges all notions of good taste…

    Jeff, Who Lives at Home 2011

    ★★★★★ Watched 22 Mar, 2012 3

    "I just wanna feel that we both wanna, like, be in love. I want it so...bad."

    Have you ever felt like you're drifting aimlessly through life? Have you ever longed for someone to love, a longing that runs so deep you can hardly contain your emotions when you're alone in your bed in the middle of the night? Have you ever felt like everyone's abandoned you? Have you ever felt like none of it means anything? Have you ever felt…
