    The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse


    Genuinely one of the most difficult viewing experiences I’ve ever had. I cannot for the life of me figure out who this short film was made for. This must be what the CIA shows prisoners to get information out of them. Children don’t have the attention span or interest for anything presented here. Teenagers wouldn’t be caught dead watching it. Old people gonna fall asleep watching it. If you’re not an Oscar completionist, this is not for you!

  • TÁR



    The first of 2022 I truly can call a film. I’ve not seen any of the other two Todd Field works, but if they’re anything like his work here, they’ll be masterclasses in attention to detail, interweaving symbolism, ambiguous presentation of ideas, and rich character writing.

    Todd Field and Cate Blanchett’s ability to make Lydia Tár feel so lived-in that the majority of the general public believed she was a real person at first is an impressive feat in and…

    My dad lives in Virginia. I live in Florida. It’s a Friday afternoon.

You wanna go?” Friday night comes and I’m already landing in Dulles International Airport. Easiest decision to go home I’ve ever made.

    The video game callbacks are great. I was raised on these guys and this is a genuinely fun universe to be explored cinematically. A little too rushed for its own good; totally could’ve spent more time in the different Mario Galaxy settings and chooses to do a drive-by shooting of a bunch of them instead. I think in a world where mass audiences applaud superhero movies for making brief cameos of already made-famous characters/actors, this movie suffers from cameo-level development…

    “It’s bigger than you.”


    Isn’t as polished as some of Chazelle’s other efforts but definitely his Boogie Nights. The rise and fall of a group of motivated characters in a changing industry. It’s funny, full of flair, and rich to witness. More intentional than Chazelle is getting credit for too; he knows what he’s doing!

    Sat three rows from the screen on this viewing and I absolutely felt like I was in Pandora. My field of vision was completely engrossed into the screen and proved a wild experience. Love love love the underwater scenes of the kids learning how to ride the Ilu and vibing with the Tulkun. James Cameron knows how to world-build.
