I saw a bunch of stuff in between when I stopped posting on LiveJournal and when I finally managed to get this space up. Let’s discuss, in brief and also in four parts!
Here are movies I paid to see, which actually came out more-or-less recently. Like in the past three months.
* There Will Be Blood. I don’t think I can add anything to the conversation about this movie. I enjoyed it thoroughly, and I think Paul Dano’s performance was fantastic and sadly overlooked.
* The Savages. Messy & real & difficult to watch for anyone who has a turbulent relationship with their parents. Which is basically all of us, yeah?
* Persepolis. Gorgeous. See it. Go! Now! It was totally robbed by fucking Ratatouille at the Oscars.
* Girls Rock! When it ended, a woman in the audience said, “I want to go to Rock Camp!” Me too, man, me too. Loved it to bits.
