    I have no doubt that this movie will prove more influential to me over time. I was aptly engaged for the first 30 minutes, but as time wore on, I started to let my mind wander. I don't think that is a bad thing to do with this kind of loosely constructed video essay. I adore Kirsten Johnson's Cameraperson, and although I probably tolerated Chantal Akerman's News From Home more than I liked it, I still found it thought-provoking.

    Hello MTV and welcome to my crib where we literally killed a guy last year! Actually, it’s not even my crib. It belongs to my boy Jésus. He was super pissed about it. Now the dude we killed’s girlfriend is all over me. I’m only 17 but I feel like I’m close to death. And that’s what’s up on The Real World!

    Was not sure how I was going to feel about this based on the first 10 minutes, but once it falls into that free-flowing lyricism of Springsteen’s poems, any concern about its predictable trajectory feels null. It’s dynamic and sincere and Javed’s story meets the criteria of both assiduously personal and familiarly universal. 

    I’m always thrilled to watch people get their lives changed by music. This, Sing Street, and Leto form a beautiful trifecta of ‘80s nostalgia movies wherein music becomes a weapon against a disappointing regime. 

    Bruce rules!

    Jim Bakker really put out the televangelist version of a YouTube apology video for views and donations. Truly ahead of his time

    Neville are you okay?”


    “Never better, I feel like I can spit fire! You haven’t seen Luna have you?”


    “Luna?”


    “I’m hot for her! I think it’s about time I told her, since, we’ll probably both be dead by dawn!”


    Why does nobody talk about this very important interaction??
