  • Persona



    Me: finishes watching Persona
    The camera zooms in on my face
    I pause
    I clear my throat
    I adopt my best terrible Swedish accent

    (on the plus side I now know where Monty Python got the idea for the "Swedish" titles at the beginning of The Holy Grail)

  • Tootsie



    Cute film, great cast (including a surprisingly low-key Bill Murray), and feminism! Approved.

    Single White Female


    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    So, things we should learn from this film:
    - never get a housemate while on the rebound
    - never let your girlfriend go down on you until you have proof it actually is your girlfriend
    - don't get a puppy if you live in a high rise (cats are fine though)
    - if your friend is copying your style she may be trying to turn you into her literal twin
    - Jennifer Jason Leigh is NOT, I repeat NOT, Ally…

  • The Lesson

    The Lesson


    This was great: I was gripped all the way through and Margita Gosheva is excellent. Also, lessons to be learned:
    - never take out a loan
    - from anyone
    - ever
    - that's basically it
