last week’s films…


Our Little Sister (2015), Hirokazu Koreeda  movie of the week

Definitely one of my favorite directors. And to see one of his films on the big screen was very exciting. I’ve now seen all of his feature films from 1995 to the present – 10 films – all of them are five stars. No hesitation.

The Steel Helmet (1951), Samuel Fuller    rewatch

Samuel Fuller once said: If a story doesn’t give you a hard-on in the first couple of scenes, throw it in the goddamn garbage. And you’ll take notice of his opening scenes – and The Steel Helmet opening does not disappoint.

Welcome to the Dollhouse (1995), Todd Solondz     rewatch

Room (2015), Lenny Abrahamson     rewatch

Ain’t Them Bodies Saints (2013), David Lowery 

You’ll notice Lowery directed another film I saw at the theater this week (something about a dragon).

Wiener-Dog (2016), Todd Solondz 

Wiener-Dog does not pick up where Welcome to the Dollhouse leaves off – but like many of Todd Solondz’ films, there are intersections that become apparent.

Pete’s Dragon (2016), David Lowery

The antithesis of a Disney film – the reason why I loved it. I can see kids getting bored – and something told me I should see this.

Eccentricities of a Blonde-Haired Girl (2009), Manoel de Oliveira
