    The Florida Project

    ★★★★★

    I loved the Florida Project. Director, Sean Baker is a great story teller and visual genius. The story is mostly seen through the unknowing eyes of a 6-year-old girl, Moonee. Moonee is a rebellious child being raised by an essentially rebellious child. There is no backstory on any of the characters and no real ending either. It made me nostalgic for the childhood innocence that is only with us for such a short period of our lives.

It’s “Brokeback Mountain” meets “Catch Me if You Can” with an undercurrent of "Bad Santa" like humor and I loved every minute of it.

    ★★★★★

    I am so angry with myself that it took me so long to get around to watching this movie. This movie is so incredible that I feel like my entire standard for judging movies has to be reevaluated. Without question, Stanley Kubrick has to be the most talented director in cinema’s history. Kubrick is not only innovative with his directing, he can tell a story in a way that is so captivating. “2001: A Space Odessey” was made in 1968;…
