    I think this is my desert island movie.

    The Other Side of the Wind

    Glad to report Orson’s “8 1/2” is an electric, nightmarish howl of age, ego, sex, and masculinity. That comparison is superficial, this flick is truly its own thing.

    We had a walkout during the pie scene. Their loss.

    Just your family friendly, Amblin-esque movie about killing a pedophile.

    Trevorrow hasn't made a good film, but he reminds Brad Bird of his younger self, so now he gets to direct Star Wars. Wonderful.
