  • Fast Food Nation

    Fast Food Nation

    I mistook this for a documentary since I've been watching through the popular and high impact food/climate docus alongside making some real-life "sustainable living" lifestyle change choices (we all should be.) As soon as the movie started I realized exactly what I was in for: Linklater's meandering dramatized vignettes of social and economic issues that intersect with or are caused by the fast food industry.

    I found it amusing how tonally similar to Boyhood the overwrought dialogue and themes feel. It's corny, but as a catalog of scenarios intended to parallel real-life: it's fine, it exists.

  • Family

    Family

    I love movies that feel like a voice unlike any I've heard before. Family is not-to-be-missed refreshing and hilarious and a highlight in recent releases.

  • Under the Silver Lake

    Under the Silver Lake

    Exactly the beautiful meandering indulgent asinine intrigue I needed.

    When I paused the movie an hour in to go pee I was having such a great time watching it that I felt a tinge of pleasure realizing I wasn't even halfway through. The kind of movie I watch movies for.
