Bone Tomahawk 2015
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 2014
This film does something difficult: it's funny and sad, in an honest way.
The Grand Budapest Hotel 2014
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.
