  • Uncut Gems

    Uncut Gems

    ★★★★★

    Seeing Martin Scorsese’s name appear during the opening credits of Uncut Gems inadvertently reminds the audience (if they’re entrenched in pop culture at all) of his controversial remarks last October, regarding the current state of cinema; and more specifically the influence of superhero films in America. The kinds of films those like Scorsese crave to see on the big screen could very well be dying off—in favor of these, how you say, “theme park rides”. Now, that’s not to say…

  • 50 First Dates

    50 First Dates

    ★★★

    I have a rich nostalgia for the tone early-2000’s comedies exhibit; so when I watch something like this, I can can still feel the intensity of the sunlight blasting down on me as I step out of the darkness of my local AMC. Such a simpler time.

    As far as 50 First Dates—an obviously ludicrous premise, executed with a surprising amount of heart. It’s got good intentions, but seriously, Rob Schneider needs to be stoped.

  • Here Even So

    Here Even So

    Taking some time to watch Eli’s films today.

    I never knew him well at all, and we only shared some sparse words with each other over the years, but I am truly messed up hearing of his passing.

    I wish I had watched more of his work while he was still here. It is clear in both Here Even So and Nobody that Eli was an artist with an honest vision. You can tell these films came from the heart, and it’s a tragedy that he won’t continue to make more.

    My thoughts and condolences to his family and friends.

    Stalker

    ★★★★★

    The last month of my life has been one of the hardest I’ve ever endured emotionally. I won’t get into detail, but I lost the most important person in my life, and since then I have felt totally lost. My purpose is no longer clear and my spark for all things creative feels as if its gone out. The things that once brought me comfort now seem to bring on a sense of unease. Even watching films is a challenge…

    2001: A Space Odyssey

    ★★★★★

    70mm

    Monumental. I drove 4 hours and 30 minutes out of my way to see this print, and believe me when I say all the travel it took to see it was well worth it. 2001: A Space Odyssey has never looked or sounded better. Of course the texture of the film itself felt different. The colors were really crisp, the images themselves were incredibly sharp, and there were so many little visual details I’d never noticed watching this before.…
