Barton Kimball

I think of myself as an older version of Lights Camera Jackson.

    Imagine watching a stand up comedian bomb in a Spirit Halloween store for 110 excruciating minutes. That’s this film.

    A Marilyn Monroe Biopic dressed up in a Lynch-esque nightmare. A pretty punishing experience from beginning to end, I guess I'm a masochist because I enjoyed it. Dominik is truly one of the best visualists working today (Jesse James still stands as one of the best looking films of the last few decades), so even when this film is at its most harrowing and ugly, it looks absolutely gorgeous. The Nick Cave & Warren Ellis score is easily the best of the year, conjuring up both Vangelis and Badalamenti. Like Nicole Kidman say's "Heartbreak Feels Good in Place Like This."

    Maybe don’t marry a guy that only likes to fuck to The Shining Soundtrack?

    Paul Thomas Anderson’s sweetest and loosest film. A series of well observed vignettes, capturing the sunny 70’s vibe of the SF valley  on grainy beat up film stock. The kind of movie that would make Hal Ashby proud.

    It also has the most running I’ve ever seen in a feature film.
