    Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

    ★★★★★

    There's a darkness inside Laura Palmer. Something that is eating her from the inside as she enters an underworld of drugs, sex, and unspeakable horrors. She pushes away everyone that she loves and cares for so that darkness won't seep into them. But there's a light inside of her. A light that wants to shine but never will as its taken away from her too soon. These are the last seven days of Laura Palmer's life.

    I was in awe of this film. How can someone make something this beautiful? This poetic? This majestic? I didn't think I could love Rooney Mara more but holy shit she is my  God. Ryan Gosling in his best performance since Drive. Natalie Portman is fantastic as always. Michael Fassbender is a legend in this film. Malick has never made a film this romantic, this intimate, this lovely, this heartbreaking, and this beautiful. I'm L I V I N G !

    I hate The New York Times.

    The Grand Budapest Hotel

    ★★★★★

    A eulogy within a eulogy within a eulogy, let not the breezy tone and absurdity of the film misdirect you, “The Grand Budapest Hotel” is quite possibly Wes Anderson’s most melancholic film he’s done to date. It’s a eulogy to not only many characters within the film but a eulogy to a deceased style of filmmaking, Wes Anderson’s homage to the works of Jean Renoir and Buster Keaton. A lot similar to what Peter Bogdanovich was doing at the time…

    Martin Scorsese recently said in an interview, "Cinema is gone." but what I think he meant was, "Cinema is gone because what's the point of making films when Carol exists?"

    "Watching dad cooking made me very happy. I know I'll never taste his steaks again...but I'll never forget just how they tasted."
