    Maybe the perfect baseball film?

    I've seen Chinatown more times than I can remember, however after each viewing I find myself compelled to think I've just witnessed one version of cinematic perfection.

    This Is Martin Bonner

    ★★★★½

    This Is Martin Bonner is a superbly acted and well crafted indie drama. The film's central relationship between a recently released convict and a Christian transition mentor does not veer into well-worn tropes, but rather finds poignancy in the unexpected bond of starting life anew. If I can offer any criticism, and only selfishly, it would be that Chad Hartigan's film is entirely too brief- I wanted desperately to continue following the principal characters well past the film's run-time. Perhaps the "nicest" of surprises in 2013.

    The Canyons

    The number of times James Dean utters "BAM" without affect or proper human cadence directly corresponds to the frequency in which I hoped to bash my skull in while watching The Canyons.
