    You Killed Me First

    ★★★★★

    One of my favorite short films. Lung Leg can barely get out her lines, but maybe neither can her character, a teenager speaking out against her oppressive parents for the first time. She has such incredible anger and energy, combining into ferocity. It’s one of my favorite performances. And I always forget how funny Karen Finley is in it, too! Her sweater advice to her daughter is the best!

  • The Howling

    The Howling

    ★★★★½

    Far more violent and utterly horrific than I remembered! And a fucking great cast of characters! What a treat!

    I saw this as a cynical, shitty teenager, and hated it. Even before revisiting it, I was deeply ashamed of this fact because I knew in my heart I was wrong. I am proud of how much I have matured in the last 17 years as a viewer of cinema, and that I can now recognize Face/Off as one of the greatest films of all time.

    The thing Brooke Adams does with her eyes in this movie might be my favorite thing anyone has done in any movie.
