Posted by Katherine Putnam on March 24th, 2012

“I really hate that attitude, you know? ‘Everything’s already broken so why don’t we just keep on breaking it again and again?’” I always find movies like Away We Go hard to describe.

I also quite like a well done dark comedy, which is why I was excited to give American Dreamz a chance. Spoiler alert? I was a bit disappointed. “Maybe […]

“Without you, today’s emotions would be the scurf of yesterday’s. “ I’ve almost missed the deadline! Curse you, pesky cold! But I will not falter so early in my resolution. Oh no. Let us forge onward into a review of the first foreign film of the bunch, Amélie. (Vive la France!) “You mean she would […]
