    I don't have much positive to say about the film as a whole, but holy shit are those "chalk circle" scenes masterfully done.

    Gaga: Five Foot Two

    ★★

    Apparently Gaga has never seen Pennebaker's Don't Look Back. There's no such thing as an honest behind the music documentary. There's an agenda, a persona being sold every second a camera is present. Makeup-free and often sobbing, it's a look no less trumped up and manufactured than Kiss' Unmasked days.

    Guardians of the Galaxy

    Well, that was surprising. I expected a fun Superhero Space Western, but I really did not expect to see something that is in the ranks of the best looking films of the year. I've got to give it up to the cinematographer and production design team. A true understanding of light and color theory was on display in numerous shots. The way desired elements in the foreground and background were emphasized not only by the lighting, but by pretty subtle arrangements of complimentary colors was near-painterly.

    Oh yeah, and kudos to the film for an irreverent post-credits sequence and the dirtiest joke in Marvel movie history.
