    I wonder how one would turn out if John Waters really was one’s psychologist? Direct my life, Mr. Waters! Help me find that Tracy Turnblad level of self-love and confidence!

    Aw dang. Schumer totes won me over with Trainwreck so I thought I’d give this a try. I like what they were trying to do with the messaging, but the central gag just didn’t really work and parts of this dragged. Michelle Williams’ tiny voice was awesome though. And I loved the Renee-Ethan romance.

    Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold

    Is it terrible that I just want to quit my job, drop out of school and spend my days tracking down and reading everything Joan Didion ever wrote?

    One of my fave films of 2017. Watch when you’re in the mood for something contemplative and beautiful. Like Saarinen’s church - slightly asymmetrical but balanced. On rewatch, I was more attuned to the scenes that echo or mirror each other.  John Cho, if you’re ever in Vancouver, can you hit me up? I’ll show you my favourite buildings and you can help me work through some shit.
