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. They take us places we’ve never been, bring us to other times, and allow us to feel so many different things. My appreciation of film is more than just what I get out of it. I’m giving a hat tip to the writers, the directors, the actors, and the entire creative team every week during my #movietherapy.

While my favorite place to be is in the movie theatre, (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!

Also I’m a fan of writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson’s past work, especially Punch Drunk Love. The filmContinue reading “Licorice Pizza”

The Matrix Resurrections

The Matrix Resurrections

Neo (Keanu Reeves) and Trinity (Carrie-Ann Moss) are taking us back behind the green pixelated curtain of The Matrix – or are they? The opening is familiar, with shape shifting agents bringing us that feeling of déjà vu – we’ve seen this before. The action comes on quickly and introduces a new blue-haired character, BugsContinue reading “The Matrix Resurrections”

West Side Story

West Side Story

West Side Story the Musical (1957) was one of the LPs I used to listen to on my mom’s record player way before I saw the 1961 film. I think I was around 11 or 12 when I realized how much emotion came through the music. The lyrics told a story, and there was thisContinue reading “West Side Story”
