    Late Spring

    How we're "supposed" to live is so often a trap.

    American Gigolo

    In Steven Soderbergh's Traffic, there's a scene where a representative from a cartel shows Catherine Zeta Jones' character a doll that dissolves in water into its pure cocaine-y essence. I feel like if you did the same thing with the original negatives of American Gigolo you'd get the same result.

    Has any other American film ever been so cutting, so caustic about middle class life?

    It weighs a ton in 2018. Imagine how it must have felt 50 years ago? Nevermind acid and Woodstock, this was real freakout of the 60s.

    An Actor's Revenge

    An astonishing work. Many layers at work. One of the most beautiful films ever made. See it.
