    The Daughter of Dawn

    ★★★

    "Constancy, thy name is Red Wing!"

    It was apparent from the beginning that this would be a no-frills, low thrills narrative so I found engagement by watching it more like a Robert Flaherty-type pseudo-ethnography piece. That is until the Chief challenges his daughter's two suitors to literally jump off a cliff to prove their ardor and the loser subsequently sells out the tribe to the Comanche. Then it got fun.

    Paterson

    ★★★★½

    This is the America I believe in.

    Farmers' market cupcakes,
    A bar without a television,
    Method Man doing his laundry,
    Going to the mall on a Saturday to watch Island of Lost Souls,
    And a middle class blue collar life.

    The Limits of Control is about anger.
    Only Lovers Left Alive is about apathy.
    Paterson is about passion.
