    It Follows

    ★★★

    It Follows has a wonderful opening sequence that instills a sense of dread and understanding as the film continues. The film uses a simple premise derivative of some of the best horror films while adding its own special modern twist. The idea of the sexual histories of your partners coming back to haunt you, as well as on going fears of STDs is firmly rooted in this film as is the notion that the evil in your life may never be defeated or understood...at least alone.

    ★★½

    A light fluff of the a film starring a woman that is as close I would ever want to be to Queen Victoria. My review on cinedelphia.com:

    mother!

    ★★★

    Motherhood. Biblical allegory. God complex. Being a "creative." There's a lot to latch onto if any of these topics appeal to you. It's the following morning and I'm still thinking about it. You won't be entertained, but you will have an experience, negative or positive. It depends what you bring to it.

    The Shining

    ★★★½

    From my list of shame! Definitely not what I expected, but I enjoyed watching. I think above all else I love the potential this film has in terms of world building and I found myself wanting to know more about this mysterious hotel more than anything else. More from this universe please!!! Our full discussion here: shamefiles.libsyn.com/010-the-shining
