    No Face still scares me. And Yubaba.

    The Secret World of Arrietty

    Not heavy on plot but very pretty. The tiny world is gorgeous and full of carefully rendered details (The sticky tape climbing equipment! The  textured wallpaper! The gold-equipped kitchen!) There’s also outstanding sound design. Everything rustles, creaks, swooshes, chirps, drips, clinks, meows, clatters, etc.

    The attention to even the littlest things just made me want to see more and more of Arrietty’s world, which also reminds me of when I was a little kid and would make forts with my brother…

    It’s Zawe’s movie and everyone else is just living in it.

    The Letter Room

    ★★★★½

    A short film about the power of letters, love, and loneliness in the sad walls of a prison. The story is deceptively simple and sparse, showing how unconditional love can make such a beautiful impression. The supporting cast, especially Alia Shawkat, is memorable with one or two short appearances each. 

    Oscar Isaac absolutely owns his moustache and dad bod.
