todd solondz is a genius

12 years ago he made one of the best films of the 90s. if the quasi-sequel to happiness does not pack quite the same punch, it is regardless confirmation of the fact that few people make me laugh out loud, gasp in horror, shrink in embarrassment and cry in sadness pretty much all at the same time. enjoyable? questionable. necessary? most certainly.

and charlotte rampling is in it.

and a great soundtrack

devendra and beck. what is not to like?

yes, she can still move her face

Rabbit Hole

Well, Saturday is all about watching good drama. and this fits the bill. A young couple coming to terms with the death of their 4-year-old. Moving, obviously. But also good lashings on humour. For such heavy subject matter, one walks away feeling, well, optimistic.

best film of the year?

quite possibly. tipped off by oats.
jacki weaver. give the woman an oscar. NOW
