Maybe my favorite all-time documentary #upintheholler
Young and fresh and so different! Sasha Lane was getting some (small) Oscar buzz, and I live for the fantastic Riley Keough (the Girlfriend Experience and Elvis’s granddaughter)…amazingly still very good with loser Labeouf in some scenes (he def ain’t the star)

“To all the dreamers out there around the world watching this tonight in places like Ukraine and Venezuela, I want to to say we are here, and as you struggle to make your dreams happen and live the impossible, we are thinking of you tonight.”
“This is for the 36 million people who have lost the battle to AIDS. And to those of you who have ever felt injustice because of who you are and who you love, I stand here in front of the world with you and for you.”

A 2000 comedy film written, produced, edited, and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, and starring George Clooney, John Turturro, and Tim Blake Nelson, with John Goodman, Holly Hunter, and Charles Durning in supporting roles. Set in 1937 rural Mississippi during the Great Depression, the film’s story is a modern satire loosely based on Homer’s Odyssey.
Sirens had the gift of singing in a very seductive manner. Sailors were enchanted by their voice and condemned to stay on their island forever and die. All over the island of the Faiakes, there were bones of sailors who weren’t able to resist the Sirens’ divine melody.
I took Playbuzz’s “Which Hollywood Bombshell Are You?”
You love the 1940s and film noir. You’re partial to an older beau, but you are smart and in control. You are beautiful, but wouldn’t describe yourself as a pin-up girl. You’re the wonderful Lauren Bacall!

I went to see Inside Llewyn Davis this afternoon, and fortunately the Best Offer had taken it’s place at the little art house theater. Go see this movie ASAP if you love the idea of love and you can appreciate art…or if you can appreciate love and love art, that works as well.

I saw Pompeii last night, not even having Jon Snow could save it, but Keifer was so so cute as the bad guy.
This documentary centers around Tanzania, and the desperate plight of her people. The Nile perch is not a fish indigenous to Africa. It was introduced into Lake Victoria (probably by European tourists) and it flourished, decimating all the local fish. Now there are huge factories that process the perch and send it to Europe for sale, while the Tanzanian people slowly starve. The documentary also reveals that the planes transporting the perch also move other cargo (guns and drugs).
You will fall in love with Hushpuppy when you meet her. I was emotionally exhausted after seeing this movie, wanting to help her and parent her and protect her as she so bravely struggles. Hushpuppy (Quvenzhané Wallis) is nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress, the movie is also nominated for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay.
“Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds
Or bends with the remover to remove
Oh no, it is an ever-fixed mark that looks on tempests
and is never shaken”
Willoughby breaks Marianne’s heart, she almost dies after he deserts her…
The City of God is one of the most dangerous, crime-ridden and impoverished slums of Rio de Janeiro…the gritty realism, the poverty, the hope, the hopelessness of the Cidade de Deus on display make this one of the best movies ever directed.

Fascinating, horrible, dirty, terrifying…watching Jared Leto, Jennifer Connolly, Ellen Burstyn and Marlon Wayans slowly be destroyed by their drug addictions. Graphic, troubling, skin-crawlingly uncomfortable…nightmarish and fantastic at the same time.

Surprise & Waterloo
I loved Juliette Lewis & Toni Colette long, long ago: 1994, when I was 7 years old…
Piazza San Marco
I fell in love with the beautiful Rossano Brazzi right along with Katharine Hepburn, even though I knew he was going to break our (her) heart. We (Katharine & I) fell in love with Venice as well.
