All of my reviews were done in the past and I do not stand by any of them. Do not ask me to justify my ratings!

    This has some obvious structural problems. Why abruptly end the "I don't like him/her" song w/ a complete reversal? Then follow it up w/ a lengthy & irrelevant sequence about hunting? Just cut that & do a proper "falling in love" song.

  • On the Count of Three

    On the Count of Three

    ★★★½

    I think a lot of people will find this to be off-putting because of the subject matter. But I think it provides a really interesting examination of the reasons people attempt suicide by showing the contrasts between the two leads.

    The key to enjoying this film is to think about it enough to follow the plot but not *so much* that you start to have questions. Take it on faith that it all works otherwise you'll lose a week of your life to making diagrams trying to sort it out.

    Watching The Shining forwards & backwards at the same time challenges you to find your own meaning in the chaos. Psychic Teens just rocked it! I can't imagine a more perfect soundtrack. Thanks Cinedelphia Film Festival!
