    I wish we got to see into everyone’s cool, magical room. The coffee cup kid was my favourite side character. This is kind of what I imagine 100 Years of Solitude is like (I’ve read like two pages).

    Wes Anderson’s Avengers.

    For someone who works in publishing right now, this made me nostalgic for a fantasy version of the past when journalists went on weird adventures around the world yet were coddled by rich editors.

    A love letter to writers, artists, storytellers, story seekers, students, etc.

    The Letter Room

    ★★★★½

    A short film about the power of letters, love, and loneliness in the sad walls of a prison. The story is deceptively simple and sparse, showing how unconditional love can make such a beautiful impression. The supporting cast, especially Alia Shawkat, is memorable with one or two short appearances each. 

    Oscar Isaac absolutely owns his moustache and dad bod.

    ★★★★★

    Still amazing, fantastic, swoon-inducing, brilliant, bittersweet, lush, breathtaking six months after my first viewing.
