    Unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. I can confidently say that this is my favorite Altman flick. Tuna melts for dinner tonight!! Screened in 35mm at the New Beverly.

    I love that less-heralded Meryl Streep films like Falling in Love, She-Devil and Defending Your Life have been shown considerable appreciation lately. De Niro and Streep are such a breeze together. Their chemistry is chef’s kiss.

    This film is magic. I saw a screener of Petite Maman a few months ago and found it so captivating that I promised myself I’d see it on the big screen upon its stateside release. Promise kept. Heart full. Vive la France.

    Another mic drop of a film from Kurosawa. Shoutout to Takashi Shimura’s sublime performance. This is  essential viewing. It’s a Wonderful Life could never.
