    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.

    A Star Is Born


    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.
