    CRYING THROWING UP SOBBING WRITHING IN PAIN

  • Titane

    Titane

    ★★★★½

    Have a bad relationship with your birth father? Assume a new identity and get a new one! A classic queer story.

  • The Last Waltz

    The Last Waltz

    ★★★★½

    It looks so great after all these years, can’t imagine how much better it’ll look on the criterion restoration

  • Detour

    Detour

    ★★★★½

    It gets all the classic noir tropes in a cool hour. Loved the permanent defeated look on Tom Neal’s face. He’s done in from the start and he knows it.

  • Center Stage

    Center Stage

    ★★★★½

    Clearly made with a labor of love and respect and reverence. It goes so naturally between narrative film and documentary. Maybe one of the best biopics ever.

  • Pig

    Pig

    ★★★★½

    I love that the film was marketed for its gruff appearance but it’s one of the most tender things I’ve seen all year. Nic Cage man. I just wanna watch this movie 50 times.

  • Ciao Alberto

    Ciao Alberto

    ★★★★½

    Need the Massimo Alberto Machiavelli sequel NOW

    This is literally my favorite thing this year that isn’t Luca

  • La Haine

    La Haine

    ★★★★½

    Absolutely BEAUTIFUL cinematography. Every mirror scene is so expertly framed

  • The Killing Floor

    The Killing Floor

    ★★★★½

    Bill Duke is such a versatile director whose voice is heard through all of his films. He puts so much life into them, this being his finest.

  • Beau Travail

    Beau Travail

    ★★★★½

    The last scene is why I love cinema

  • An Elephant Sitting Still

    An Elephant Sitting Still

    ★★★★½

    Came to see an elephant sitting, left with more emotional trauma

  • The Hustler

    The Hustler

    ★★★★½

    I love seeing Paul Newman play a depressed, pathetic man. Very sexy of him
