Thanks to a knight in shining armor (literally, a friend who’s a metal worker), my Friday evening was salvaged, meaning good post film conversation on a balmy spring Floridian evening. However, I’d like to hand out an award based on the film The Lovers I saw at Burns Court Friday evening. No, no, not to… Continue reading Sorry to Say You’re a Bad Lay: The Lovers

To recap, I had seen Chantall Ackerman’s film, recently saw Potter’s Orlando, and last night viewed Jane Campion‘s The Piano.

The Dinner, sadly, is a film you should have reservations about…. Am… Continue reading The Dinner, have some reservations
Wow, just finished a recommendation for a PPLL, L.I.E. directed by Michael Cuesta. Was surprised I hadn’t heard of this director considering how well written and how artistically directed this film was from ‘way back’ in 2001. And while an Emmy for Homeland is nothing to sneeze at, I would have expected his subsequent films… Continue reading Unsupervised Teens, Always Big Trouble “L.I.E.”
