    Paths of Glory


    At only 88 minutes, this is half the length of most war films and twice as emotionally affecting. The perfect film for Armistice 100.

    La La Land


    Every time I've watched this movie, my wife and I have had a wonderful conversation afterward about love, vocation, and commitment. It's the same themes and ideas every time--even the same conflicts or quibbles about characters and the meaning of the ending--but, in its own lovely way, it still feels fresh and restorative.

    This is a good film.
