movie therapy and more

I have been a fan of movies and filmmaking for as long as I can remember. I believe most of us are, and that movies can give us a lot to talk about, and even more to think about. Movies take us places we’ve never been, bring us to other times, and allow us to feel so many different things. These feelings offer connections that bring us together through shared experiences. We might be reminded that we’re all human and become encouraged, educated, and empathetic. My appreciation of film is more than just what I get out of it. I’m not a movie ‘critic,” I’m just enjoying the experience, the art – and sharing my response. I’m showing my appreciation for the writers, the directors, the actors, and the entire creative team every week during my #movietherapy.

While my favorite place to be (besides on set) is in the movie theater, (with a dedicated empty seat beside me), these days I’m back to watching from home every now and again. And they don’t have to be the newest release, or the highest rated movie. There are thousands of movies I haven’t seen. Do you have a favorite I should see? Let me know!

Nick Cage is a Massive Talent. So much so, that Super-fan Javi (Pedro Pascal) offers him one million dollars for an appearance at a birthday party. Of course, that sounds beneath him, until Cage finds himself in need of cash after his latest failed audition. He takes the offer and majestically jumps into the middleContinue reading “The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent”

Everything Everywhere All at Once

Everything Everywhere All at Once

Everything Everywhere All at Once – that feeling when everything is happening to you all at the same time? When everything is so out of our control we feel almost like victims. Maybe we attribute it to a celestial occasion – a moon wobble or Mercury Retrograde, to try and explain it. But could itContinue reading “Everything Everywhere All at Once”

C'mon, C'mon

C’mon C’mon

C’mon C’mon brings Uncle Johnny (Joaquin Phoenix) and his nephew Jesse (Woody Norman) together to explore family connections and the ways we interpret the world around us. It’s beautifully shot in black and white by director Mike Mills, providing an intimate but casual backdrop to a heartfelt and emotional script. Johnny is a radio journalistContinue reading “C’mon C’mon”
