  • Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things

    Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things

    ★½

    As a minimalist-curious I really wanted to like this. But struggled. 

    I wonder what life is like for minimalists who don't spend their lives trying to convert others to minimalism. Are there any?

    For me there was too much "ist" and too little "ism". 

    And all the hugging was just weird.

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    At this point I kinda just want to get to the climax. Does that make me a bad person?

    Kos was right, Snape did kill Dumbledore. I thought he was just trolling me all those years.

  • Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police

    Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police

    ★★★★

    The rise and demise of The Police as told through the lense of Andy Summers, the guitarist and probably lesser known of the three band members. 

    This is the sort of documentary that I could watch all day and all night and into the early hours of the morning and contemplate rewatching the next day.

    The story of his relationship with his wife and family, which is woven through, is heartbreaking. 

    I'd like to see more of his photography. What an awesome record and memory. I imagine him getting lost in that archive for days. 

    Recommended.

    96 mins is a long time to feel as lost as I found myself watching this.

    This film sounds amazing. Shut your eyes.
