The Lonesome, Crowded West

McDormand and Zhao take us to "Nomadland"
There's so much Oscar hype surrounding Chloé Zhao and Frances McDormand's new film "Nomadland" that I'm curious whether the film's quiet and contemplative simplicity will wow audiences trained to think hyperbolic over-reliance on big emotion is what makes modern movies "dramatic." "Nomadland" is the antithesis of movies like "Green Book" and "Crash," which seem offended by the very idea of subtlety and instead use the brick of manufactured prestige to bash the head open of anyone looking for serious and meaningful ideas built around nuanced filmmaking.

No Rabbits. No Hates. Just Magic.

Identity exists in and of itself in this moving live show
A friend recommended I watch some weird-ass little movie on Hulu called "In and Of Itself" and now I can't think about anything else.


Revenge is Always Ugly

"Promising Young Woman" enrages and engages
I'm coming in hot to 2021 with a fat stack of movies I expected to see in a theater last year that are instead slowly and without fanfare being dribbled out to Video on Demand and streaming services. The irony is that with the brand-new VoD releases, the studios are trying to recoup as much money as they possibly can, so the rental price is $20...more than a movie ticket would actually end up being.
