    Short Term 12


    Quiet, sincere, and rather wonderful. I'm enjoying films lately about people being people.

    There Will Be Blood


    For not seeing this before now, I have no excuse. Amazing, powerful, beautiful, depressing. Daniel Day Lewis is a powerhouse.

    Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things


    I'm interested in the minimalist movement, if we can call it that. This movie, however, was mostly about rich white guys whining about a "void" left unfulfilled by all the shit they had. A dozen scenes with one of them saying "I'm a hugger" was about eleven too many. It's too bad this didn't have more interesting content. Maybe just let Sam Harris talk the whole time.

    Loved it. Mel Gibson, despite his failings, is a helluva an actor.
