    Few films are perfect, this is one of them.

    ★★★★½

    What a charming picture, and a joy to experience. Classic filmmaking at its finest. If you dislike the film because of its filmmaking, then great, more power to you. But if you dislike it because of its depiction of race and racism, when Harry Belafonte calls it "accurate," "true," and "wonderful," then you should know that you are wrong. When Mr. Belafonte tells you you're wrong about this issue, then you are wrong. Plain and simple.

    ★★★★

    Serenity is a fascinating film, not just for the audacity of its narrative, but by how much sense it actually makes. Most of what people pointed out as "flaws," fit within and support the narrative of the film. I won't elaborate to avoid spoiling the film. But it's one of the most interesting studio offerings in recent memory. Watch it and judge for yourself.

    The House That Jack Built

    ★★★★★

    An artist staring into an abyss of his own creation, which he created as a reaction to the abyss of existence. A head on collision of self examination. I know it's odd to say this about Jack, but a Lars devotee will find it quite moving. And that's just one aspect of it.
