    Nathan for You: Finding Frances

    ★★★★★

    Insanely perfect.

    A comedic, human experience of documentary filmmaking. Covering regret, identity, purpose, and all encompassing an introspective look into Fielder both as a creative and his self-based character and series of Nathan For You.

    One of those pieces of art I wish I could experience for the first time over and over again.

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    Since a young child, film has been one of the most important facets, forms of escapism and inspirations and routes of creativity for my now adult life. One important franchise that played a big part into this was the Star Wars franchise. Seeing the original trilogy (New Hope, Empire, Return) as a child on those 3 VHS tapes was magnificent and for me joined the likes of Steven Spielberg's E.T. The Extraterrestrial and John Lasseter's Toy Story in films that…

    Allen synchronizes his smarmy wit and personal life experiences he’s known for including in a lot of his films to paint a brilliant portrait of nostalgia, connection, and the influence media (in the case of this film the golden age of radio)  can have on people to create a fun portrait of a bygone era that’s enjoyable thanks to his huge ensemble cast and all the interactions they have. A lot of this feeling like a type of portrait where…

    ★★★★

    A good director can make a good film or two. A great director (or one with the makings of one) can make a good film or two and show improvement. And Ain't Them Bodies Saints is David Lowery's proof of that. He's always looking to fine tune his work and creative instincts and ideas into his stories with each entry into his filmography.

    The bronze-lit, neo-Western focuses on the emotions and feeling of loneliness, longing and need for closure and…

    Fuck you, John K.

    You mock modern cartoons for having a samey art-style hut your shit hasn't changed since you fucking started. You have this holier than thou opinion of yourself and your work which in itself has inconsistencies abound. Jesus fucking Christ.

    The uncanny valley moments of your characters in your ugly-ass environment. How can something be simultaneously moving yet still? Honestly. Your lack of pacing and timing. And reliance on unfunny gross-out. The hackney ass voice acting. How…

    I decided to give this a watch in prep for Booksmart tonight. And if this movie is any indicator, I'm going to love Booksmart. Because this was very witty, had a great heart to it all and some solid performances. I also dug the editing as it got creative in spots and helped me appreciate it even more so. All in all, one of the better short-films I've seen.
