    Private Life

    ★★½

    I found Tamara Jenkins’ “Private Life” an exhausting viewing experience. I’m not adult enough to appreciate this story. The film is well directed, written, and acted, but I was unable to connect with it on an emotional level due to my immaturity.

    ★★★★

    I realized that on second viewing that Cooper’s “A Star Is Born” is junk masquerading as high art. I mean that as a complement! This is melodrama of the highest order. I enjoy the film in the way that I enjoy a McDonald’s hamburger. I love it, it’s satisfying, but it’s not a profound meal.

    A film I never understood as a teen. A film I understand too well as an adult.

    CBGB

    "CBGB" is terrible. It makes you wish that punk music never existed. It makes you wish any type of music never existed. It makes you wish films never existed.
