    It's Such a Beautiful Day

    ★★

    the title is ironic xD

  • September

    September

    ★★★½

    Mostly benign, run-of-the-mill post-Hannah Allen ensemble until it goes crazy for about five minutes and a huge revelation is organically, impressively brought about. Farrow the most broken and reticent she's been, Stritch a marvel in being shamelessly unapologetic. Up with Interiors as one of the good serious ones.

    Napoleon Dynamite

    ★★★½

    Gosh. A brave affront to everything in the world that ever tried to be something it wasn't for love, money or power. Napoleon's kind of awful and thinks he's good at things he's not, but it's the same for the world and it's worth making fun of ourselves when we pretend otherwise. Or something like that.

  • A Serious Man

    A Serious Man

    ★★★★★

    Terrifying conjuration of a universe where all we can hope to do is stay within its rules, to 'be good', and any attempts to dig further only reveal that everyone else is just as bewildered. Interweaving of dreams, nightmares, and an ending that's horrifyingly real.
