    It's a Wonderful Life

    People need people.

    This movie is the closest I’ve ever come to religion. Mercy is a beautiful thing.

    Lady Bird

    You know what the most Sacramento thing about Lady Bird is? The thrift store, Thrift Town, where they shop for a prom dress—well, two of the chain’s three locations closed less than two years after the movie was released.


    UPDATE 06/20: All Sacramento Thrift Towns are now closed.




    UPDATE 4/22: It’s back. Sacramento is back, baby.

    Emergency

    Once the plot kicks in, the movie has terrific momentum. Smart wrinkles are sprinkled in throughout and a fully-developed performance from RJ Cyler lies at its center.

  • Little Girl

    Little Girl

    Such a tender, observant film brimming with empathy. It’s also a masterclass in editing, as it patiently captures all the tiny moments that make stories like Sasha’s so indelible.

    “There is a point [in fighting].”

    Norm Macdonald: Me Doing Standup

    “I come from a long line of death.”

    When Norm talks about his dad passing or his uncle’s cancer, you can see him momentarily drift elsewhere. There’s a little bit less of the stand-up facade in those moments and more of just a guy grappling with his own emotions.

    RIP to a uniquely funny man, a legend.

  • Doppelganger

    Doppelganger

    A Hallmark movie for dudes that collect VHS tapes. Not great, not even particularly good, but it’s got some elements that are at least interesting-adjacent. Namely, there’s a central Lynchian vibe and a committed Drew Barrymore performance.

    I’ve been in a bit of a movie rut recently, so something this unsubtle and provocative was just what was needed.
