    Yasujirō Ozu is out of Noriko territory and out of the happy go lucky landscape of the last few films to a couple that are a bit more of realists in the mundane blue collar work society, Ryō Ikebe as Shoji Sugiyama and his wife Masako Sugiyama played by actor Chikage Awashima.

    I'm enjoying the more adult narrative…

    Djibril Diop Mambéty's 1973 masterpiece theatre of a film is a little hard to watch if you love animals ~ fyi

    Otherwise, this film gets it all right because its supposed to be this type of poetic adventure the likes of Alice in Wonderland or The Wizard of Oz even. The story beings at home with your…

    should have been a miniseries

    It’s not the original, but I don’t need it to be. This remake has a lot of good story depth that makes it refreshing, current and different than the original and even the book. It finds levels on racial diversity that the books couldn’t even do. 

    The acting is the gold here, the performers are all having fun…

    Emma.

    ★★½

    i’m not sure we needed another movie about a rich white girl slowly realizing and feeling bad that she is a rich white girl..

    that being said, the score is absolutely fantastic. the acting is also very good.
    a great film to fall asleep to. 

    can we please not make anymore Emma ‘s?

    Also I wanted Alicia Silverstone to come in and say “Daddy!” one more time. Wrong movie?

    The mind of an Aquarius meeting the parents.

    It’s Get Out - with white central characters. The sound is the film’s strongest point. I wanted to love this. And I only kinda like it.

    Kaufman is better suited as a writer, as a director he still haven’t been proven he can.
