    When I was in my early twenties, I used to feel an obligation to "keep up" with new movies and produce an annual top ten list, but over the years, I've increasingly come to see both activities as a...

    I think in the context of the 1950s and 1960s, toppling the high/low art binary was a positive development since it made it possible to take classical Hollywood cinema, jazz, and other forms of...

    Pigs and Battleships and The Insect Woman are both great. A Man Vanishes has some interesting things in it but it struck me as a bit long and drawn out the one time I saw it. Profound Desire of the...
