  • The Lad Goodbye

    The Lad Goodbye

    Free to watch, here: https://vimeo.com/724077761

    Actually, you should really watch the short film, Hi, Lad! first, as The Lad Goodbye is a sequel/continuation, and it does matter for context… but you can watch that for free here: https://youtu.be/WiDK3CfdJqc

    I hope one day y’all can see this in a theater; but for now, enjoy some creative independent cinema. It’s a true journey, so make sure to have some brews and/or bud near by (no movie has ever made me desire to be…

    ★★★★½

    This movie is fucking bonkers from beginning to end, and actually somehow only continues to find ways to get crazier, and elevate itself. What a bugnuts "kids" movie... but also, straight up not for kids? Of course I loved it! Can't wait to watch this forever now (this is one of those; most likely when I was a kid, my eyeballs were in front of at least some of this movie, but never at any conscious point in my life could I say I've watched this)!

    One of the greatest final lines in cinematic history; bar none.

    Buffalo '66

    ★★★★★

    This shouldn't work. It should be deplorable, convoluted, annoying, and pretentious. It should make me feel sick, I should hate this, I should never want to look at Vincent Gallo, and I should wash this away from my life. But I just can't. It just works. It's magical really. Brilliant performances all around, wild stylistic choices, and a moving tale of a horrible protagonist (that you somehow feel bad for (sometimes)) slowly learning to accept, take responsibility, and love. What…

    The Shape of Water

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

    2022 EDIT: have had this feeling towards this review (and others of its type I’ve written) for years at this point, and never thought to do this until now. While I do still vehemently hate this movie, I would never write a review like this, ever. This much time expunging negative energy towards anything can’t really be productive. But a crucial component of my whole idea towards my journey as an artist is to never shy away from the past…
