Stop the presses, for once I like a movie more than the New York Times. In fact, Amy Nicholson was downright harsh. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t LOVE Passages. But I did appreciate and even knowingly shake my head in understanding and remembering my second marriage which had an eerily similar dynamic of a… Continue reading Passages: Hey Mikey, She Likes It!
Much like Triangle of Sadness, (an Oscar 2023 nominated film), Afire, written and directed by Christian Petzold (Undine and Transit being his other most recent and popular), deals in part with the breakdown of relationships caused by sexual power dynamics. What begins as a trio thrown together, two men on a working vacation with a… Continue reading Afire: Pentagon on Sadness
*Fair Warning: Spoilers are here, breaking my promise, but just this once: Day Two of ponderings (with gratitude toward @Filmspotting for helping nudge me to my current feeling for the film). My reaction and thought process about the film Past Lives has changed like phases of the moon. So it’s appropriate that today’s Super Moon… Continue reading Past Lives, Present Jives, Imbalance Thrives
Please email me your comments at email@example.com…I have not cracked the code of getting WordPress to be my friend re. comment availability. I promise to answer all humans who reply. Bones and All is based on a book by Camille DeAngelis and certainly not anything I’d ever read. The horror/love story genre’s not my cup… Continue reading Bones and All-Most
Bros, directed and co-written (with star Billy Eichner) by Nicholas Stoller is a novel and authentic take on gay relationships. Not only that, I believe it is the beginning of normalizing gay relationships. Perhaps a controversial take, but until more of these groundbreaking films are seen, society is going to have to deal with indgnant… Continue reading Bros: Been awhile since I got to type “well written”!
First of all, where are my people? Come on world, or ok, I’ll go smaller, Sarasota. Ok, smaller still, Ringling College Film Majors? I’d really like to see more intellectual and artsy people at Burns Court. For Peter Von Kant, I had a small passionate few who stayed for the talk back who I really… Continue reading Peter Von Kant: Raises Interesting Questions
I’m not going to change, but it’s always dangerous to read the book before seeing the movie. But danger in a marvelous way, since our brains are able to picture who we’d cast as actresses and actors, what hotel rooms we envision, etc… So with that being said, while I enjoyed the movie, it did… Continue reading Three Thousand Years of Longing Left Me Yearning for A.S. Byatt’s Story Depth
Surely I’m not the only one who justifies her/his staying in and saving money by this self-shaming scold; You subscribe to two streaming services, find something at home to watch. So my thriftiness led me to “Monday” released in 2021. Once I’m done posting this, I’ll be reading the other human who saw this, John… Continue reading “Monday” on Showtime: You know what K.C. sang “Rainy days and Mondays”…well switch out Crazy for rainy
The Worst Person in the World is just the ticket for an introvert. Also, a great corpse reviver if you’ve worked on your feet for 6 hours. Put those two bonus points together and you have Roxanne feeling like she could go out at 7:17 pm by herself on a Saturday night. Sure, I went… Continue reading The Worst Person in the World Got Me out of the Introvert House
Marty, the four time Academy Award winning movie starring Ernest Borgnine holds up 66 years later. Here’s why: People still succumb to peer pressure. Bros before hoes is still a pressure for some boys/men. People fear change and hence, would rather be stuck in a rut and miserable rather than take a chance on rejection/failure.… Continue reading Marty, Still Relevant After All These Years
