    EDIT to say:

    In my work meeting this week, I found myself heartily endorsing TÁR — "Oh, I loved TÁR. Really good." A coworker who hadn't seen it piped up — "oh yeah, isn't that the anti-Me Too movie?"

    watched at the aero theater on the same day i learned my old hometown 4 screen movie theater got turned into a virtual golf simulator. after watching this very funny and gorgeous looking spectacle on one of those dates where you squeeze each other’s hands during the lovely parts i can confidently say that virtual golf simulation is the exact opposite of artistic expression.

    seeing it in a theater for the first time meant seeing gene kelly tap dancing ten feet tall. wowee! so wonderful to see what happens when dancers direct. tagging noirvember because it rains in hollywood
