  • Lean on Pete

    Lean on Pete

    ★★★★½

    “if they ever thought of me, i’d rather they think of me as being ok”

    whatever i was expecting, it wasn’t this: a crushing, singular vision. completely captivating and even cathartic. an intimate look at the way people in our lives come and go, but in the end we only have ourselves and whatever keeps us going

    Won't You Be My Neighbor?

    ★★★★

    the collective sigh of everyone in my theater when it ended and we’re all trying to inhale our tears

  • American Animals

    American Animals

    ★★★★

    what was working so well as a comedy became dark and realistic FAST, but for the most part i think the genre shift is effective. my rating for this is probably gonna go up or down with some reflection, only time will tell

    also, the best line in the movie, in reference to reservoir dogs: “it’s probably my least favorite tarantino film”

  • The Long Day Closes

    The Long Day Closes

    ★★★

    so ambiguously intimate that it’s almost claustrophobic. there’s poetry to be found in every frame here but it was too vague for my taste, at least for the first watch
