    Michael Jackson's Journey from Motown to Off the Wall


    Excellent documentary by Spike Lee diving deep into the making of Michael Jackson's most important solo debut album: Off the Wall. Lot's of interesting commentary, some truly spectacular live performance footage, and lots of creative directing touches that do a great job of telling the story of this album's birth & impact. Good stuff.

    Arsenic and Old Lace


    Such a strange wonderful film that's this odd mix between slapstick comedy & dark murder elements and somehow it all works. Great dialogue, hilarious situations, and Carey Grant has never been more nutty - his facial expressions alone sell the whole thing. A strong ensemble cast and Capra's assured direction tie it all together.

    Such a clever combination of horror and comedy with lots of satisfying twists and tons of crowd pleasing lines. Pure entertainment and a personal nostalgic favorite.

    Brilliantly makes the audience a silent additional member of the mission party. Incredible, next-level, absolutely jaw-dropping camera work and a captivating story that hits several poignant emotional moments. Wow.
