    In Sudden Darkness

    ★★★½

    breezes by like a repressed memory, especially for something i experienced but was too young to remember. the 2003 blackout in nyc - a moment, that strengthens the endearing intimacy between mother and child, while testing the responsibilities of a negligent father coasting on the fires of a high school romance, as well as the desperation of a city at large.

  • Ten Five in the Grass

    Ten Five in the Grass

    ★★★½

    lassos, wranglers, hogties. gentle brushes. herding. everson casually observes the community, lingering on black cowhands preoccupied with their practice and responsibilities - in an environment that tips further toward cohabitation for every quiet moment of chaos. real country shit.

    Legendary Weapons of China

    ★★★½

    goofy as hell - voodoo doll possession abound. the fight choreography/pyrotechnic work is especially spectacular; i think my favorite scene involves an attic fight between the male lead and actress kara hui wherein the two begin mimicking the sounds of a cat and mouse to deceive a hotel guest (gordon liu) staying below. i wish the notion of firearm invulnerability and the relationship between the three main characters amounted to something grander, but this was definitely an entertaining watch
