Waste Land

Waste Land

  I almost don’t know what to say about this film— one of the most touching, heartwarming, poignant, and inspirational movies I have ever seen in my life— without sounding hackneyed and/or like the Hollywood trailer for Seabiscuit or something. But somehow, this week in New York City in particular, in which we reminisced about […]

And here I thought you just didn’t love me {sniffle}.   Speaking of love, have you ever had your heart broken? Don’t be afraid to admit it, of course you have. Well!

Date Night

Date Night

  Ha ha ha, OK— you know by now I like my films "highbrow." (And you love it.) But this one I just couldn’t resist. Maybe you don’t agree (although what you could possibly have against Steve Carrell and Tina Fey, I’ll never know), but even you have to admit we all need a little […]

The Most Dangerous Man…

November 16th, 2010
The Most Dangerous Man in America

  The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers Wow, the obstacles a person has to go overcome— just to tell the truth. OK, comparatively, I know it’s not remotely the same level/degree of importance/urgency, but the main things I liked about PX This so much were its honesty and courage. […]

  Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… and Spring Hey, feel that chill in the air? No, huh? Well, you felt it last week, didn’t you? So— you know what all that falling and rising and falling in the temperature means (aside from the impending destruction of the world due to global warming and the perpetual evil […]

Banlieue 13…

  I’m right here, thanks for asking! So! You really liked Old Boy, did you? Yeh, that was a good one, wasn’t it? And therefore, unfortunately, kind of hard to top. But don’t worry, I got a little something for you. It may not be as big a "mind-fuck," but it’s got mess loads of […]

  Yeah yeah, it’s Fashion Week, we know. (Believe us, we know.) Hooray for Fashion. But, while you’re preparing to go out running around to all the parties tonight like Anna Winotur’s lemming pawn, please try to bear in mind: September is also the month of the year when the dolphin slayings begin again in […]

Rabbit-Proof Fence & The Great Match

Rabbit-Proof-Fence

  Oh sure, you wanna complain about the heat. (Or your job that you hate. Or that dickhead customer last night. Or your stupid, cracked-out General Manager. Or…)   Well, have I got a better idea for you! Maybe you need a little pick-me-up. A little ray of hope. A story (or two) that will […]

Brooklyn’s Finest

  There seems to be a bit of controversy lately over our recent recommendation of La Esquina as the place at "the top of [the] list" to dine as a "hip and savvy local," should one happen to have a single night’s visit to NYC. It seems that the latest "changes" at La Esquina may […]

Old Boy

On recommendation from a friend, I finally took a stab at Korean "revenge classic," Old Boy. And— Oh boy. What can I even possibly say? Was this the most riveting, eye-popping, "bugged out" movie I have ever seen in my life? Yes. Yes, it was.     Watch it. That is all. Thank you.   […]
