    The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

    ★★★★★

    Umbrellas,
    what to say of this beautifully heart wrenching film.

    It never fails to make me feel so warm and tear my heart out at the same time.

    The shots are enrapturing.
    The set design is ravishing.
    The music is chilling.
    The performances are intoxicating.

    Everything about this film is so fully executed.
    I've seen it multiple times and the same shots give me goosebumps every time.
    Not to mention the incredible final scene, which never fails to catch some…

    Synecdoche, New York

    ★★★★★

    Charlie Kaufman accomplishes something that only a very few do with cinema.

    His allegorical tone, consistent ingenuity, and genuine character intentions and moments are so admirable and genius in just a screenplay aspect it feels, by the the time the credits roll, that you’ve gone to an entire museum exhibit of a unique and proficient artist.

    The amount of themes this film tackles is beyond belief. Some are so enthralled in metaphor and unique display they barely make it out…

    Over the Garden Wall

    ★★★★½

    Been a few weeks since I’ve sat down to watch something.

    Going to be a few weeks until I can again.

    Life’s getting crazy.
    But I’m getting happy.

    Witt and Greg complete this.

    Had an ocular migraine and couldn’t see for a few hours so I put this on in the background and listened.

    Great album!

    ★★★★½

    About once a year, every year, I get this crazy urge to watch this film.

    I don’t know where it comes from or why.

    But this morning I woke up and all I could think about was this incredible film.

    ‘Twas a nice morning with the Torrence’s.

    I was really not planning on watching all three in one shot when I put the first on at 11pm.
    But man.

    This trilogy is fucking incredible.

    I’m blown away on how gripping and absorbing 5 hours straight of dialogue can manage to be when in the right hands.

    Linklater, Delpy, and Hawke fucking kill it in every single piece of this masterwork.


    The characters radiate such similar strains in mannerisms and passionate dialogue. It really lives up to one…
