    ★★★½

    So glad this film was able to provide work for so many white male British actors!

    ★★★★

    This movie scared me so much as a child and gave me a phobia of pigs. Still have the phobia, and am still scared of this film. People do not change, except in this film, which is a glorious coming of age tale. That is all.

    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."

  • The Idiots

    The Idiots

    ★★★★

    By Idiots. About Idiots. For Idiots.

    Very uncomfortable-making, but raises interesting issues of uncomfortability through this uncomfortable-making, namely, becoming uncomfortable in the presence of difference. Von Trier manages to attain a level of pure sentiment amidst all this controversy, too-- a real feat.
