    I've been seeing lots of "controversy" over the supposed value of La La Land vs something like Moonlight, usually insinuating that La La Land's comparative levity somehow renders it lesser. My quick two cents would that be that yes, Moonlight is a magnificent portrait of masculinity in 2017's world, with broad, valuable insights on how race, sexual preference (*orientation*) and class all influence and inform one's identity. Basically a vehicle and showcase for compassion and empathy in a world seemingly…

    We all grieve, yet we grieve in many different ways. A death can make a family stronger, or destroy it. Some people never get over a loss. Others, find a positive out of a negative, and use their experience to educate and help others. I'm envious of those who've never experienced a significant loss. That's probably why it's not the end of the world for me when a celebrity dies. It's okay if you get upset when a famous person…

    ★★★★½

    This movie is funny. This movie is political. This movie is intelligent and wicked and very, very calculated. This movie is sometimes visually stunning, and impeccably acted.

    But mostly, it's scary as hell.

    For the love of cinema, do not watch the spoilery-ass trailers. Do not read any reviews unless you trust the reviewers to be circumspect about giving away the plot. Go in as blind as possible and just let the story's surprises unfold. Assuming you're okay with scary…

    A celebration of colors contrasted by breathtaking monochromatic backdrops, damien chazelle reminds the increasingly minimalistic world of motion pictures what movies are essentially about -- motion, then invites us to tap our feet, spin around like we're in a silent movie and dance along to the gradual build-up of trombones, via fluid, energetic camerawork and precise choreography. I can not give this any less than a perfect rating, I am a slave to this film and its music.

    Or: What Do We Talk About When We Talk About Racism?

    The only way to really begin a dialogue regarding Jordan Peele's Get Out - a surrealistic and searing Buñuel horror show - is to observe its final image and ponder the implications. Composed of flashing police lights dissipating into a tunnel of darkness while a woman is bleeding fast towards the finality of death, its basic informational grammar, taken without context, visualizes defiant (or oblivious) law enforcement in…

    ★★★★½

    Sometimes, the rawest of tension can be created by pure silence. The lack of a main score (or any use of music), the quite dialogue between characters, and the vast, empty landscapes of the desert, all of it makes the short bursts of violence all the more gut wrenching and disturbing.

    This is one of the most intense films I've seen in a good while, even though most of the time, not a whole lot happened. Usually you'd get the…
