    That Obscure Object of Desire

    ★★★★½

    What a fun surrealist romp! 
    Bunuel paints a portrait of a dysfunctional relationship by having two actresses play the same character. The two women switch in and out, seemingly at random, evoking the elusiveness of her character as seen through her lover's eyes. Sounds a bit sexist (women are so unpredictable and fickle, it's like they're two people at once!) but Bunuel leverages this response to critique male desire's violence. 
    And it's hilarious!!!!!!!1!1!1!11!1oneoneone

    The Edge of Seventeen

    ★★★½

    Strong performance from Steinfeld, great writing...until the ending, which has to be the most banal, generically teen rom-com ending possible. "NOW SHE HAS BOY SHE CAN LIKE HERSELF."

    After the Storm

    ★★★★

    A moving, funny, poignant family melodrama. Typhoons seem scary. You should see it. That is all.
