    Basically a remake of The 39 Steps. There's a lot that works and a lot that doesn't.

  • Hereditary



    Wowza. This film fits my horror sensibilities completely. I can't wait to add this to my folk horror roster. Great flick. It's like the perfect antithesis to The Shining.

    Incredible film about language, lose, and love. Beautifully packaged in a great science fiction drama. I love this renaissance of smart scifi that seems to be gaining traction. I can't wait to see what Villeneuve does with Blade Runner.

    Phantom Thread


    There is a moment in this film that is my favorite thing PTA has ever shot/wrote/directed, that Johnny Greenwood has ever scored, and that Daniel Day Lewis has ever acted. Go. See. This. Film.
