    Until We Could

    ★★★★

    Elegant short film highlighting the essence of love and the victory of marriage equality for all. Truly heartfelt and gorgeously filmed. Narrated by both Ben Foster and Robin Wright giving wonderful voice to this beautifully written poem by Richard Blanco.

    This is what true artists can bring to the conversation. Using their talents to delicately and wonderfully highlight the beauty of love itself.

    Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    ★★★★

    Film #14 of my 2018 MUBI Viewings

    *****

    David Lowery (director of "A Ghost Story") loves a slow and emotionally powerful story. Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck again star in this Lowery drama, but here they are very different characters... and Affleck doesn't wear a sheet for the whole film.

    It's a slowly ebbing character piece with some powerful performances by both Mara and Affleck as well as Ben Foster and Keith Carradine who have wonderful supporting roles. Great work…

    **********

    Oddly, this is my first Michael Powell film. Gotta watch more by this guy. This movie was EXTREMELY well done.

    What makes it so great is the empathy that Powell creates with the killer. Mark (the killer) is just plain nuts. But he's struggling with it. The dude KNOWS he's sick and that there is…
