    The Go-Go's


    It was wonderful to see such an open-hearted, deep dive into one of the quintessential 80s pop bands where everyone speaks openly about what happened, the good, the bad and the ugly.

    Hugely entertaining and really inspiring to see the women come together again after everything they've been through.

    She Dies Tomorrow


    I'm not sure I fully understand everything going on in She Dies Tomorrow on a first watch but I like what I saw and I thoroughly enjoyed the crazy, sometimes weird, sometimes hilarious, ride. And the entire thig with Jane and her sister-in-law and the werid birthday party conversation is super relatable (as are many a moment in the movie).

    And can we all just agree that Kate Lyn Sheil is a brilliant actress and should be in all the things?

    I’ve liked, though not always enjoyed. Lars von Trier’s offerings over the past few years but for some reason, likely the combination of length and expectation, Melancholia escaped me. With his new film due for festival runs this winter, the time seemed ripe to catch up with his 2011 offering. Why did I wait so long?

    Undeniably beautiful, Melancholia is also my favourite of von Trier’s works. It’s his exploration of a woman suffering through depression on her wedding day…

    I have a few issues with it - namely the motivation behind one of the central moments in the 3rd act and a too-long action sequence - but otherwise, it's a total lovefest.

    At one point, I was so joyously happy, I even got a little teary-eyed.
