    12 Angry Men

    ★★★★

    lumet really brought us from the courtroom drama, where we’re the de facto jury of the case, to the intimate deliberations where we are now the jury of the jury in which we judge if one of our core democratic institutions is sufficient to decide matters of life and death huh?

    Light of My Life

    ★★★★★

    Maybe I'm a sucker for how tales of survival highlight a person's inherent will to live, but Light of My Life is gripping and sincere. The opening scene between Affleck and Pniowsky plays out like a two person play with uninterrupted, lengthy stretches of dialogue. A bedtime story turned meta commentary on how the intention of a narrative may not always match its execution.

    Deliberate pacing leaves way for moments of true terror, only so palpable due to the relationship…

    ★★½

    86 minutes of secondhand embarrassment! An extra half star for that modern love needle drop though.
