    Nothing quite like it!

  • Marnie

    Marnie

    ★★★★★

    “You don't love me. I'm just something you've caught! You think I'm some sort of animal you've trapped!”

    Underrated Hitchcock, but unsurprisingly so. Marnie is nowhere near as sleek or controlled as movies like Rear Window, Psycho, or Vertigo. It has a jagged edge to it, one that makes it far less palatable and far more rigorous a viewing experience than many of Hitch’s crowd pleasers.

    Late Night

    ★★½

    Charm just doesn't replace actual comedy :/

    Reflections in a Golden Eye

    Willem Dafoe is such a legend...

    Killer performance from Bette Midler. Zsigmond’s cinematography is beautiful, as usual. Fans of Her Smell should definitely seek this one out.

    ★★

    Desperately wish this weren’t a studio movie from Tate Taylor. Nowhere near as weird as it should be!

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    It’s been an honor, Mr Zilla

    I hate that I contributed to Netflix's metrics for this piece of garbage.

  • A Woman's Face

    A Woman's Face

    ★★★★

    Criminal to have waited so long to see one of Joan Crawford’s best roles/movies.

  • Smiley Face

    ★★★★★

    “People would be all like: Jane, why do you have a photo of President Garfield on your mantle? And I'd be like: Because I like lasagna, of course.”

    There’s so much baked (lol) into this, I just can’t get enough.
