    The Emerald Forest

    The true wild man is John Boorman. Really impressive. Thought I was just getting a dramatic Jungle 2 Jungle but it goes in some crazy directions and becomes magical Taken on the River Kwai. Recommended!

    The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

    With 25 years of preproduction you can really location scout the fuck out of a movie.

  • Milkwater


    Delightful! Writer/Director Morgan Ingari is an exciting new talent! This is the Michael Jordan of surrogacy dramedies! I'm sorry I said dramedy! I hear it's the "moist" of blurb portmanteaus! But I'm not looking for a movie that takes itself too seriously! Or too goofily! I'm looking for a Milkwater! Saw this wonderful independent film at the Brooklyn Film Festival, which is now in Queens! Or McMurdo Station! Or wherever your computer is! My ticket was $0! Molly Bernard and Patrick Breen are great! Everybody is great! Except for the brief offscreen voice of college drinker Bobb Barito. He was terrific!

    Murder by Decree

    Wow one of my favorite Sherlock and Watson castings. Perfect foggy London atmosphere. A classic style makes the release year unguessable other than the Watergate-iness. The mystery could be more of a page-turner, but it gets a million points for being about Jack The Ripper.
