    See You Yesterday

    ★★★

    Strong and important film that gets a bit murky when you really think about the time travel elements. Powerful.

  • Someone Great

    Someone Great

    ★★½

    Who was the great someone in Someone Great? It couldn't have been Lakeith, right? He seemed like one of those hot aimless guys—how the FUCK did they last 9 fucking years?

    Was it Gina Rodriguez? It's possible; she was a lil TOO lit in this, but I'm here for any romcom she's in, not just for her getting her swerve on in boy shorts, but for the #romcomletter she writes on the train.

    Maybe the great someone was DeWanda. She brought it to this.

    The Florida Project

    ★★★★½

    This is up there with the best films I've seen this year. Sean Baker took two relatively unknown actresses, had them stand toe-to-toe with Willem Dafoe, and churn out a beautifully-shot, gut-wrenching tale of ratchet Orlando in the shadow of Disney. There's a lot to unpack, especially since a bunch of this is told through the eyes of a 6-year-old.

    All kinds of funny and painful and sad and child-like and beautiful and scary. It's America, for good or ill.

  • Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

    Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

    ★★½

    Just so I'm clear, Ted Bundy is the bad guy, right?
