    Masterpiece. Such refined, simple cinematic language. And that killer ending. It’s perfect.

    Such a weird Matlock prequel.

    Seriously, one of the best debut performances of all time.

    Yep, still perfect.

  • Rachel Getting Married

    Rachel Getting Married

    ★★★★★

    ‪Ebertfest inherently heightens emotions by being a celebration of its namesake but I still wasn’t ready for how much Rachel Getting Married absolutely wrecked me. Thought of Roger, Jonathan, my kids, my parents - it’s such a beautiful, powerful film. One of my faves.‬

    Still one of my favorite comedies of all time. And still as funny as it was three decades ago.

    ‪Just watched this again front to back on the Arrow Blu-ray with my wife, who had never seen it. The rare film that I love more every time. I think it might be a masterpiece. www.rogerebert.com/demanders/arrow-releases-first-must-own-blu-ray-of-the-year-in-crimson-peak
