    Let Them All Talk

    This is a low-key gem that grows and grows after the first viewing. It's delicate, easy, miniaturist moments in the proper context reveal some thoughtful notions about aging, mortality, friendship, and art. In my experience it really came into focus by the end and then expanded as I talked it through and ruminated on it afterward.

    The Bad News Bears

    ★★★★

    Inspired by a project I'm working on and last year's Polly Platt series on "You Must Remember This," I finally caught up with this movie.

    Crazy, the ways in which you couldn't get away with some of this today. But Walter Matthau, Tatum, O'Neil, and the other kids have some truly special chemistry.

    Weirdly not a movie for kids, even though it's a movie /about/ kids.

    That rough, shambly, '70s style suits the central character and the story so beautifully.
