My Top Five Of 2023

A big cheat, but a tie for Number One:
Poor Things for it’s originality and whimsy, Holdovers for it’s homage to my favorite decade (the 1970’s)
Number Two: Going way against my original first impression, Past Lives. The film making from the grand sweeping shots of New York, to the smaller melancholic reflections in mud puddles…this was a film like a fine wine.
Number Three: Anatomy of a Fall-Sandra Huller is a miraculous actress and this is before seeing The Zone of Interest.
Number Four: Nyad. Jodie Foster is my soul sister and Annette Bening is perfection. I cried twice!
Number Five: Killers of the Flower Moon, far too long, but when you tick the landing with perfection as Scorsese did with his radio play, well, all is forgiven.
