    A Tale of Two Sisters

    I don’t know, I just miss when foreign horror movies would knock the pants off of midnight-madness crowds at fests, and Screen Gems would dutifully swoop in to produce an awful PG-13 remake for the first week of January starring whichever CW star was the hot girl du jour. I deserved to get away from my family at the end of a holiday visit for a 12:25pm matinee of ‘Raw’ (2019) starring Lili Reinhart, with a customary 21% on Rotten Tomatoes and clocking in at a tight 87 minutes. I deserved it 😔

    Every! Little! Detail!   ***Flawless!

    Just picked up Inventory Press’s annotated screenplay, and really impressed with the publication. A faithful rendering interspersed with stills, plus a deleted-scenes addendum.

    Lady Bird

    In the interest of full disclosure, I should say that this is not just my second time watching ‘Lady Bird.’ Though I couldn’t have guessed it last November, this film about a girl that hates California has become my safe haven from the semi-frequent moments of despair in my first few months of living in California (SoCal though, not Sacramento.)

    After tonight’s, let’s say, “mixed” results in the midterm elections, I figured I’d log this rewatch for safe measure.
