    Clean

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Clean is one of those films that I’m instantly drawn to, tormented, flawed individuals seeking redemption. This gritty film follows the quiet routine of a garbage man named Clean, his loner lifestyle and his fierce protection of a young neighbor. A series of unfortunate events ultimately puts Clean in the direct path of local mobsters and there is no turning back.

    I was completely invested in this movie. I felt the tone was reminiscent of ‘Taxi Driver’. Adrien Brody gives…

    Firestarter

    ★★½

    I am always curious to see a new reimagined or updated telling of the beloved 80's films I grew up with, so I gave the new 'Firestarter' a looksie.

    The House

    ★★★★

    'The House' a stop-motion animation film, from the likes of Wes Anderson, consists of three vignettes that revolve around the same house in different eras.

    The themes of accepting change and letting go are prominent in all three stories, or at least that was my take away. I favored the last story most, the acceptance of change and the burden of worry washed away, literally. I found it portrayed this in a positive way, whereas the first two segments were chaotic, and for the most part negative in their outcome.
