    SILENCE. WRITERS WRITING.” 

    It’s in the tenderness hidden amidst the sternness of Bill Murray’s voice. It’s in the furrow of Timothée Chalamet’s brow. It’s in the cracks sounding up and down Léa Seydoux’s back as she stretches. It’s in the way Jeffrey Wright crosses his legs as he sits. It’s in the widening of Frances McDormand’s eyes. It’s in the way Saoirse Ronan pulls the trigger.
    It’s in the promptness of Mathieu Amalric’s movements. It’s in the way Adrien Brody…

    We’re suffocating.” 

    The way I shot this movie straight into my veins when I was 15 and suicidal and so unbelievably angry at the world... Such a bizarre sensation to return to it now, nearly a decade later, older and still angry at the world. 

    Adults are so quick to say teens are over dramatic, that their problems aren’t as serious as they think. But teenage girlhood really is agony incarnate. Sexualized by just about every man you pass, discredited…

    Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    ★★★★

    Before David Lowery joined forces with Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck in A Ghost Story, the trio made Ain’t Them Bodies Saints: the rare watch where, despite the main characters being deeply in love, you hope they never find each other.

    A haunting feeling permeates the film, once again, in some ways like A Ghost Story. Where in that film, the haunting is done by someone done living, this film’s haunting is done by someone who isn’t even close to…

    Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers

    ★★★

    FINE! I’ll be brave and say it: I wanted Chip ‘n Dale to kiss so badly

    Set my personal beef against John Mulaney and Disney aside for an hour and a half so I could support Andy Samberg and I will not lie, I’m really glad I did! 

    Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers is great for anyone who enjoys pop culture easter eggs or is in need of something of lighter fare. The premise of the film is so interesting…

    Malignant

    ★★

    … I am on my knees begging writers and directors to stop using female body trauma (rape/miscarriages/abuse) as brief plot devices or virtually the only exposition surrounding female characters’ backstories, its mentions featured for maybe ten minutes of screen time, only to then miraculously be completely forgotten or never properly and healthily addressed. Please. I am so tired. 

    Malignant is what I’d call a big ole razzle dazzle of nonsense. It has the visuals of a multi-million dollar funded project,…

    You’re really hard to read...” 
    Yeah, you know what, I get that all the time, but I actually think that I’m so easy to read that people just get confused and they make it harder on themselves.” 

    Black Bear is savagely primal. Aubrey Plaza’s performance is both captivating and horrifying. Christopher Abbott and Sarah Gadon delivery as well, but our lead is the lead for a reason. Plaza plays off the two of them in such an intense way that…
