    "Our prison system is nothing more than slavery and I see myself as an abolitionist," says Fox Rich, whose husband has been sentenced to prison for SIXTY years after an armed robbery. She is left to raise their family alone, but records their childrens' adolescence in hopes to one day show her husband when he returns home. Time is a brilliant testament to the power of filmmaking, and though it may seem impossible to capture two decades of life in the…

    You know I really don’t support Amazon, but goddamn am I glad that this is finally available to rent.

    ★★★★★

    One of the best rewatches I've had in some time. Todd Haynes was absolutely SNUBBED of a best director nom.

    You know, Nolan has some legendary sci-fi films in his catalogue.

    But this could be his greatest achievement.

  • One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

    ★★★★★

    For years this was my favorite film of all time. 

    I don’t know if I can still call this the #1, but strangely enough I feel as if I appreciate Forman’s masterpiece more than ever.

  • Embrace of the Serpent

    Embrace of the Serpent

    ★★★★★

    Possibly better than Aguirre? 

    An entrancing experience that forces you to pay attention. Cio Guerra's film is a haunting one, comprised of both beautiful photography and framing, and a script that takes us through time to different moments of the colonizing of the Amazon. It's important that people know these stories.

    After Hours

    ★★★★★

    After Hours really got under my skin and kept me on the edge of my seat, even with this feeling of restlessness that I had throughout the runtime. This felt like a sort of perfect hybrid between Eyes Wide Shut, Mulholland Dr., and Good Time, and it’s a genuine treat whenever Marty works on small scale, low-budget features like we have here. 

    Certainly a fever-dream masterpiece.
