    What a strange short but being a person going through this myself, this hit hard. See me crying in the end.

    Also a Toy Story 2 cameo is in this.

    The Magnificent Ambersons

    ★★★★

    I mean, I wouldn't consider the ending "happy" for people of the time to go out and say "hey that was swell" but whatever. The film is great and has the many Welles' aesthetics seen previously in Citizen Kane. Instead of the story of a lonely man, we see the story of...well a lonely man vs. everybody who tries to infiltrate his family life blocking him from his own needs. I love a film filled with family drama because these actors and actresses get to show off what they got. Agnes Moorehead was honestly stunning in this.

    ★★★½

    This was more palatable to watch than M*A*S*H*, released the same year by Altman. It's weird in every sense of the word, but there's so much fun happening in this especially with the final scene that broke that fourth wall down and had me actually laughing. Thanks to Zā for the recommendation on TCM.

    ★★★★½

    I mean if you see like two things this November worth your money, this is one of them. This is not another alien arrival film it's so much more. It is one of the more life changing films I have ever seen which surprised me a lot. I don't care you all have to see this. I am blown away by where this went and it left me feeling a sense of hope for our way of life.
