last week’s films…

Web Junkie (2013), Hilla Medalia, Shosh Shlam ★★★★

Midnight Special (2016), Jeff Nichols ★★★★★

Movie of the week. One trip to the theater this week. New #1 for 2016.

Laggies (2014), Lynn Shelton ★★★★★

M*A*S*H (1970), Robert Altman ★★★★★

Rewatch. Rewatched it a second time with Robert Altman’s commentary, which was very interesting. He never liked the tv series, which “was the opposite for the main reason for making the film.” He found out later that Sutherland and Gould tried to get him fired while it was being filmed. Of course most of the cast were unknowns, and he casted all of them from a San Francisco theater audition. His son wrote Suicide is Painless.

Of course, M*A*S*H came out 4 years before The Longest Yard, and is still my favorite football movie, even though I don’t consider it a football movie.

Prince Avalanche (2013), David Gordon Green ★★★★

Monster (2003), Patty Jenkins ★★★★

Maleficent (2014), Robert Stromberg ★★★

Noah (2014), Darren Aronofsky

Only Yesterday (1991), Isao Takahata ★★★★★

From the director of Grave of the Fireflies (1988) and The Tale of Princess Kaguya (2013).
