    Bringing Out the Dead


    Scorsese's forgotten classic that swings wildly from some of the funniest scenes in the director's filmography to the darkest.

    Also I like how concerned John Goodman is with meal planning.

  • Mean Streets

    Mean Streets


    A young man's film featuring characters with worries of the young. Infectious energy and one has to respect Johnny Boy's lack of respect for junk mail.

    A film not designed for a Letterboxd review, although it does very much seem designed for that rewatch function on this service. My initial thoughts on the faith of the characters is more cynical than other reviewers, but I wonder if that will change on rewatch. A big meal of a movie.

    20th Century Women


    Watched this on Inauguration Day. So this could be a right time to watch sort of thing. I find myself being more and more interested in films about people who are interested in the world. I can't imagine hanging out with these people for very long, but as in the film a momentary burst of enthusiasm for those around you felt very good.

    And now for four years of absolute hell.
