    Racism solved!

    Ghiblies: Episode 2

    ★★★

    A patchwork of shorts about fictional Ghibli employees that jumps through different animation styles (including CGI) and narrative tones. Starts with the slapstick of eating spicy curry before becoming a poignant reminiscence of childhood friendship. Just like in real life.

    Cat videos are for hacks. Dog videos are for auteurs.

    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.
