Tabloid

I watched Errol Morris' film Tabloid over the weekend. It was a fascinating story, sure, but the titles and typography were probably the best I'd ever seen in a film. Whoever did them did a fantastic job off pulling off the gritty tabloid-style while still being sharp and sophisticated. Go see if not for that alone. Director Errol Morris profiles…

Sons of Perdition

I watched Sons of Perdition today. A documentary about a bunch of teens who decided to get the hell out of their polygamous town and how they adjust. Fascinating that this is actually happening in America. 4/5 stars.

Netflix Gets it Wrong

I’m fed up with Netflix’s profiles and friends features. They are terribly executed and frustrating.  I’m not the main account holder, my wife is.  So according to Netflix, I’m not able to access the Watch Now feature, Facebook Connect, or even get notification emails when my movies are shipped or returned.  A year or so ago, Facebook threatened to remove this…

Brothers: Jim Sheridan < Susanne Bier

I saw the new film "Brothers" today at the Capitol Theatre. I was eagerly anticipating it mostly because I was shocked they were already remaking Susanne Biers fantastic Danish film Brødre from 2004. The American version stars Natalie Portman, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Tobey Maguire. But most American's haven't seen it I'm sure, and the storyline seems perfectly fitting for a…

Andrew Bujalski’s “Beeswax”

I went to see Beeswax, the new film from Andrew Bujalski. It finally made its way to Cleveland and premiered tonight, and I'd been itching to see it. People have been calling it Bujalski's breakthrough movie. I could agree with that, but I didn't like it as much as I thought I would. I gave his previous two films Funny…
