    Bone Tomahawk

    ★★★★½

    A streamline plot, rich with character, yet it contains one of the most disturbing scenes of violence I've watched. (My hands shielded my face as my body cringed.) There also seems to be a social-political theme at work.

  • Welcome to Me

    Welcome to Me

    ★★★★½

    This film does something difficult: it's funny and sad, in an honest way.

    The Grand Budapest Hotel

    ★★★★½

    This film is brilliantly framed: it takes us from a statue to a book to a reader; to a colorful, fun, and sad world; then it brings us back to the statue and the book and the reader. Cinema. Literature. Life.

  • Nightcrawler

    Nightcrawler

    ★★★★

    "What if the problem isn't that I don't understand people, but that I don't like them?"
