The Lobster

Release: Friday, May 13, 2016 (limited)  [Theater] Written by: Yorgos Lanthimos; Efthymis Filippou Directed by: Yorgos Lanthimos Outré black comedy The Lobster might be likened to a religious experience for those looking for their fix of anti-Valentine’s Day sentiments. If you look hard enough you  could even find enough evidence to validate its romance label as well, but it’s so weird and soContinue reading “The Lobster”

Man Up

Release: Friday, November 13, 2015 (limited) [Netflix] Written by: Tess Morris Directed by: Ben Palmer Man Up plays out like the self-help book on dating that you never knew you needed. Or wanted.

Even though that was a pretty minor role Jonze played in the show/movies, it was still a semi-recurring one. Yet,Continue reading “Her”

Release: Friday, October 25, 2013 (limited) [Theater] A film already mired in controversy surrounding it’s director and one of the lead stars, Léa Seydoux, stirs up a conversation I don’t think a great many of us have had at the theaters, perhaps ever. I think that’s because most conversations had when filing out of the exitContinue reading “Blue is the Warmest Color”

Thanks For Sharing

Release: Friday, September 20, 2013 (limited) [Theater] ….and now that you have, please don’t ever share again. It might cost us our friendship. So said Gwyneth Paltrow to Mark Ruffalo’s Adam, who’s celebrating five years of celibacy. Well, maybe ‘celebrating’ is a poor choice of words for this situation, but still. Ruffalo plays a dude whoContinue reading “Thanks For Sharing”
