    To Sleep with Anger


    Criterion Channel Movie of the Week.

    Loved Killer of Sheep so much, so I really wanted to like this - my second Charles Burnett movie. Danny Glover and the Harry character is great, but something in the movie's execution didn't click with me. Had more of a TV movie feel to me in the family's performances and melodrama. I liked the nods to Southern Gothic folklore, but failed to understand why they were transplanted into this South Central LA setting in the first place.

    What am I missing?

    Hail, Caesar!


    Hard to rank the Coen bros. but this goes right up there with Big Lebowski and O Brother Where Art Thou in the rewatchability category. One I can't wait to watch over and over again.
