    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★★★

    The Last Jedi is about four lost souls looking for purpose in their fraught and hectic lives. Rey, Ben, Fin and Poe are all on a journey of self-discovery and everything pre-Jedi has led to this defining moment for these young people. Decisions that each character make is paramount to who they ultimately become.

    While Ben’s path isn’t definitive until The Rise of Skywalker, the other three characters are set: Fin finds courage and meaning in fighting for the rebels, Poe learns…

  • Exit to Eden

    Exit to Eden

    ★★★½

    Forget the 1.8 Letterboxd rating. Forget the 6% on Rotten Tomatoes. Exit to Eden is a decent film, and I think critics and viewers have it wrong about the film’s flaws. 

    Exit to Eden as an erotic 90s film is fairly good. There are genuine moments, that if you fall into the illusion, of titillation (e.g., Elliot’s blindfold scene, the cinnamon butter scene, and the love-making scene in New Orleans) even if it’s a shade below softcore/vanilla. Also, its commentary on BDSM…

    ★★★★½

    I’ve probably watched Bound about a dozen+ times. The last two watches, I’ve been quasi-captivated by the Mickey character. I know that the film ends with Violet getting over on him but of all the men in the film, he’s the only one that treats her with any decency. When Violet kisses him, he looks like his heart is so full and broken that it’s going to explode out of his chest. Of the men that claimed to have loved her, Mickey was the only one to respect her. That was a good subtle performance from John Ryan.

    Georgia, Georgia

    ★★★★

    On the surface, you could take the film as a warning on the pitfalls in denouncing one’s blackness but it’s just as much of a cautionary tale against those that try to heavily force their idealism of what blackness is.

    Georgia refuses to accept blackness but is shallowed by her choice. Mrs. Anderson and the defectors are consumed their blackness, in ways that keep them isolated from the outside world (though the outside world has, also, isolated them because they’re…

    Six Degrees of Separation

    ★★★★½

    Probably the WASPiest movie to ever WASP, so I can see how not caring about the problems of the rich would turn you off to this. But I appreciate the kinetic filmmaking, its comedy and how it exposes the vapidity of a class of folks who value things over people. These people don’t have feelings or original thoughts just… parties and other people’s paintings. 

    The trio of Will Smith, Stockard Channing and Donald Sutherland work extraordinarily well bouncing off of…
