    If Beale Street Could Talk

    ★★★★½

    A movie that really has everything going for it. Acting, music, cinematography, costuming... the only thing holding me back from 5 stars is wondering whether the vignettes are orderedthe way they are for a particular reason. That may be abundantly clear on a rewatch, which I will do very soon.

    Every role in this film could’ve nominated for an Oscar, everyone is THAT good.

    ★★★★

    Never going to be my favorite Coen film, but probably deserves a second watch for a more accurate rating.

    McCabe & Mrs. Miller

    ★★★★

    Despite the brashness, Warren Beatty and Julie Christie do a wonderful job of creating an opacity to the title characters. Do we really know by the end of the film who they are? Was McCabe really a famous gunslinger? What sort of future does Mrs Miller envision for herself (if any)? But they’ve created a community in the process of running from the past, an awkward but functional one that can run independently from them. Was that their plan all along under the guise of self interest...?

    Beautiful winter cinematography, reminded me a bit of “Il Grand Silencio”

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★½

    This movie is pretty dumb, and I loved it. As of this writing, there may still be a chance left for you to see it in theaters - you most definitely should. Rarely do I hear an audience audibly respond to action sequences, but everyone was on board to watch Tom Cruise almost kill himself several times over. Henry Cavill’s mustache deserves an Oscar.
