Trying to figure out how to add a recommended movie list to the sidebar, but until I do, erratic postings will have to suffice.
My favorite films so far this year? Half Nelson (!!!!) and Science of Sleep (!!!!). Wildly different, both extremely moving and artful. You don't need me to describe or criticize them. Run don't walk.
And for all of you who loved Little Miss Sunshine. I'm sorry. Great actors, some funny stuff, but a bit too calculated quirkiness for my taste. See Science of Sleep for real quirkiness and romance. And Half Nelson for an exciting acting triumph.
