    ★★★★

    You really don't know what's gonna happen, not because there are no clues in front of you, it's more because you really don't think it's gonna take the twists and turns that it does. But take you on a journey it does! It feels like the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland. A heartfelt story about loneliness and choosing who you want to be in the world with the cards that you have. Unpredictable and refreshing.

    Corpus: A Home Movie For Selena

    ★★★★

    A film that takes a phenomenon driven by classicism, access, and South Texas loyalty and explores it in a quick 50 minutes. Portillo may not have an investment in Selena, but her investment in the folks of South Texas reverberates throughout the film. She wants their words to fill the screen, their love, and their pain. The young girls that have embraced Selena are front and center in this documentary and offer all of their Bidi Bidi Bom Bom, providing the heart to this film.

    ★★★★★

    Wow...they just keep going in directions that you do not anticipate. This feels like the most existential Toy Story film yet and that is a wholehearted endorsement. The complexity of what it means to be "alive" and what you do with that time is entertaining to witness. Per usual and to no one's surprise Keanu Reeves steals it as do Key and Peele. I do not anticipate a sequel mostly because I do not know how you could have a sequel to anyone's satisfaction having left this film in the state it is. A beautiful ending to a gorgeous ride.

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    How do you encapsulate music that permeates your inner intimate spirit and yet connects you with millions of people across the world, in a film? My bias is loud and front and center...this film spoke to me...specifically 10 year old me who was singing and clapping along with the Live Aid crowd from my bedroom in LA. This film was a beautiful reminder of the importance of centering queer superheroes that exist in our popular culture. It also reminded me that I'm pura queen, pura loca, por vida.
