    Sherlock, Jr.


    Real life always feels kind of lousy and boring after watching a Buster Keaton film, and that’s literally what SHERLOCK, JR. is about. Incredible.
    Also, this 45’ film basically contains all the best bits from the entire MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE franchise.

    Stunning. There's a lightness of touch to everything Keaton does here that makes the whole film feel so effervescent, it's enough to eradicate the sensations of heaviness and sluggishness usually associated with huge steam trains. The set-pieces are elaborate and impressive, and it's not hard to imagine (or find out) how much work went into them, but they serve jokes that are in fact quite simple. They have a purity to them. It's not innocence exactly, more like a humility,…

    Seeing the longer cut was such an enriching experience. The added scenes complete some of the film’s echoes and motifs, perhaps taking away some of its strange poetry, but making the heartbreak even more definite and total.
    I was profoundly depressed for an entire week after this screening x

    Transfixing in every way. Those compositions are gorgeous on their own, but they also bring out the tragic, existential dimension of a story where everything changes and stays the same. The film’s scope and bravura are breathtaking.

    My first time seeing a Western in 3D and I was in tears. It was so beautiful.

    Not a good film but truly shot by God, it looks incredible. You can imagine the DP thinking "ok, how can I elevate this" at every scene.

    Perfect Days


    "One of the best things cinema can do is make us slow down and appreciate the simple fact of being alive. The limited scope of the frame and film’s ability to stretch out time can draw our attention back to the little things that are right there for us to enjoy and marvel at, but are so easy to ignore in favour of work, future plans, or more often all the ways in which reality falls short of our hopes…

    Last Summer


    "[...] Léa Drucker is mesmerizing as Anne, a woman who appears to have it all: a gorgeous house in the French countryside, a well-paying job as a lawyer, two beautiful adopted daughters, and a loving and patient husband. It sounds great on paper, but Breillat does not introduce Anne in this way: rather, we begin at her level, in close-ups and medium shots showing her go about her days. Whether at the office or enjoying a glass of wine at…
