    Un Flic


    Just about as cool as it gets.  Even the toy train and toy helicopter are cool.  There’s a five minute scene of Richard Crenna changing in a bathroom from a jumpsuit and sneakers to a smoking jacket and pajamas and even that, is cool.  It’s even cooler when after the heist he changes back.  

    Men were never cooler than they were in a Melville movie.  And you can see that when Alain Delon slaps a criminal, that’s a slap…

    What a wild ride.  I could have never have guessed where this movie was going at any time.  It’s well shot, gory beautiful and is one of the most interesting fun versions of child abandonment issues movie around.  Great performances all over this sucker.

    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs


    An incredibly beautiful, violent and funny heartfelt ode to the cinematic west.    And within the middle of this feature movie of western short stories, there lies an ode to the death of cinema.   All while streaming on Netflix.   I wish that I could have seen it in a movie theater but am grateful for Netflix to put it out there.   

    The Coen Brothers certainly know how to film faces too.   

    I hope there’s a film print out there that will show at the New Beverly.

    Uncut Gems


    A masterpiece.  Adam Sandler destroys.  The Safdie Brothers are as legit as it gets.   It’s a harrowing movie that never lets up. It’s entertaining and funny beyond.  It feels so real, while being cinematic and stylized.  And the soundtrack is out of this world.
