I woke up on Saturday and decided to watch Climax, not sure if it’s the right decision to start the day lol. The dance numbers are fascinating, but the rest of the movie was utterly crazy and reminds me of mother!. I’ve never taken LSD when I party, and this movie surely makes me never want to take one lol.November 26, 2019 at 5:23 pm #1203204997

Knives Out was fun! The cast was terrific and clearly having a ball with their parts, the writing and direction was solid, and it’s always fun when you get the mystery right! It’s an enjoyable popcorn movie. I loved the score in particular. My favorite acting performance was delivered by Chris Evans, which surprised me. I hope we get more movies in this genre.

“Clemency” (2019): Absolutely blown away by Alfre Woodard’s performance here and hope that she gets her proper due with a lead actress Oscar nomination. I worry with Neon being such an iffy distributor and the film’s late release schedule, but I’ll hope for the best regardless. This is also a pretty stinging indictment of of the prison complex and the death penalty, as Bernadine’s no-nonsense approach to handling her warden duties and death row inmates catches up with her in both her professional and personal lives. Another standout here is Aldis Hodge as one of the death row inmates. He would make an excellent supporting actor nominee BTW. Strong supporting cast as well, including Richard Schiff, Michael O’Neill, Wendell Pierce, Vernee Watson, and a stunning scene from Danielle Brooks that rivals Viola Davis’s breathrough scene in “Doubt.” I’d say that this film is quite the feat for Chinonye Chukwu, as she wrote and directed this effort. Sometimes her direction could have been more assured and paced, I think, where a less-novice director might have handled some elements differently. But Alfre is the main event here, and I’m thrilled to see her land the meatiest part she’s been handed in years. Support this film the moment it arrives in your area!November 30, 2019 at 2:09 am #1203209124
Finally was able to watch Mati Diop’s “Atlantics” on Netflix and was not disappointed. Pretty unique viewing experience. Won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but I was mesmerized and genuinely surprised.
Fatima Al Qadiri’s phenomenal soundtrack has been available on Spotify since last week. But I have to say, kudos to director of photography: Claire Mathon. In 2019 she gave us “Atlantics” and “Portrait of a Lady on Fire”. All the awards to this lady.November 30, 2019 at 4:39 am #1203209172
I kind of went into this expecting something similar to The Shining but it couldn’t be more different. It’s a sequel that manages to stand on its own and give us a refreshing perspective because the main focus is on overcoming personal demons and choosing to protect the next generation. I’ve seen some people complaining it’s too long and dull. Not for me. Its menacing tone kept me interested from start to finish and the score was great at building tension.November 30, 2019 at 7:31 am #1203209286
Meet Me in St. Louis on the Criterion Channel. It is a sweet little film, a little dated in some aspects, but it is a good one to start off the Holiday season with, and Judy Garland is lovely as always.November 30, 2019 at 12:33 pm #1203209565

Just watched Frances and Personal Shopper!
Wow… Jessica Lange needs to get another meaty role stat. This is one of the all-time best performances.
Kristen Stewart is fantastic in this. Totally spontaneous and natural. With the right role, she’s bound to win an Oscar soon.
watch I May Destroy You
