    A Man Named Pearl

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This inspiring documentary only has 96 views on Letterboxd? It certainly deserves more.

    A Man Named Pearl is a loving tribute to self-taught topiary artist Pearl Fryar, a man living in "dot on the map" Bishopville, SC whose creativity has inspired thousands to visit his fantastical backyard garden. After having already been featured on tv specials and in national newspapers for his work, this doc explores further into his life, highlighting the hard work ethic that he has acquired over…

    This was heavy.

    I walked into this one pretty much blind, only having seen Aleksei Kravchenko's eyes staring at me each time I passed by a review on Letterboxd or saw the Criterion cover in my local video shop.

    Really, Letterboxd community? All you people who rated this 4+ stars, really??? Is this film being elevated by what will certainly soon be named "the Letterboxd effect", in which Letterboxd as a whole stans a film based mostly off the way this site highlights it, with news articles, podcasts, and a front spot on "Popular This Week"? (Mostly kidding, I love you all, but with this film we'll have to agree to disagree...)

    I understand the hype behind this one…

    Jingle All the Way

    ★★★

    Honestly, worked for me overall. It's goofy, but commits in a way that makes it tolerable, especially if just to watch Arnold be Arnold.
