    But what really happened to the bees?

    If Beale Street Could Talk


    A capital D drama, which is always going to be up my alley when it plays in to a feeling that almost seems like it would be at home on stage, but it’s the constant pull between the free camera and more formal rigor that mirrors so much of the inescapable internal conflict, one that reverberates through the ages even if all that we see is very much in a (not so distant) time. Can’t get over my aversion to brass and jazz in scores, but we can’t have it all.

    A Star Is Born

    For a movie that has so much music, I figure it's at least a little condemning that the most magnetic uses of music are from LCD Soundsystem and the faintest hint of "Yonkers" playing in a hotel room.

    Toothless, bland, dull, heavy handed without actually having much to say. Just Spielberg being Spielberg.
