A Peckinpah loving feminist. Viewings from 2018 and onward.
The Power of the Dog 2021
I squealed for your Oscar win and then you had to go and patronize/embarrass KEVIN COSTNER. Not cool, Campion. NOT COOL.
Hard Times 1975
There's something kind of zen in both the picture and in Bronson's performance. It's atmospheric, beautifully designed (the primitive religious art in his apartment was out of this world) and more restrained than other 1960s/70s era Great Depression depictions. I don't think it'll be 5 stars for everyone, but it absolutely satisfied my particular tastes. I love you, Walter Hill.
Maybe my favorite non-Christmas Christmas movie?
Metropolitan is a cozy blanket of a film, reflecting a very specific time and place in such a wonderful way.
Whit Stillman post film q&a at the Olympia Film Festival -- the moderator wore a tux and poured Whit's water into a martini glass. I died a little.
In the Mood for Love 2000
Late to the party but I'll add my two cents.
The mood and longing that hangs around like a fog was enough for me, regardless of how slight in story.
