    The Ridiculous 6

    The Cinephile Detox: 8/30 - Watch an Adam Sandler film.

    Adam Sandler's one of the more interesting actors to talk about when it comes to his work, especially from watching its fluctuation.

Bob Fosse's masterpiece is the most unflinching self-portrait told through cinematic language, uncompromising in its scope and web of self-hatred. It's everything I want out of a musical, as it takes every aspect of most musicals and embraces them, but also turn them on its head with this film's dark subject matter. It's also everything I want out of…
