    Funny Face

    ★★★½

    It's kinda shitty how Jo is punished for being into philosophy and having an intellect and Dick is rewarded for being jealous and manipulative and only valuing Jo's appearance. But hey, the Clap Yo Hands song slaps and Audrey Hepburn doing interpretive dance in a Parisian cafe is a lot of fun, so who cares if the dude she's shacking up with is old enough to be her grandpa.

    The acting, the on-location sets all over Paris, and the humor…

    Border

    ★★★★½

    2nd time watching this, and I got a lot more out of it on this viewing than the first, especially when considering the themes of the movie - mainly, how we must actively choose to be humane in order to differentiate between our "human-ness" and our "humanity." The line isn't always so clear cut, which makes Border feel both profound and dirty at the same time. It's not an easy movie, but I think it can be quite rewarding if you allow yourself to fall under the spell of it. Bumping this up a half star from my last review.

    The Wicker Man LITERALLY on mushrooms.

    Curse of the Man Who Sees UFOs

    ★★★½

    Aside from the copious amounts of UFO footage, the real star of this documentary is its subject - an enigmatic and charming (if not slightly-unhinged) man obsessed with horror movies and the strange lights he's been filming in the sky. My favorite docs are always about people - focusing in on the infinitely complex way they try to fit into the world - and in that regard, Curse of the Man Who Sees UFOs certainly resonated with me.
