Forget the Oscars! The Best Films of 2016 According to Me

It’s true that 2016 was a disappointing year for blockbuster/studio filmmaking — by far the worst crop of the entire decade — but, as always, it was a good year for cinema if you look in the right places. Documentaries […]

Memories from the Grave in 20th Century Women

The pitfall of coming of age/teen films—and most films, really—is teaching the audience a lesson as though it’s a lecture. Rather than ponder about the passage of time or how to navigate finding yourself, they blatantly point it out without […]
