movie therapy

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!

He’s a veteran…

Don’t Worry Darling

The drama and controversy surrounding Don’t Worry Darling’s cast and director probably didn’t do this movie any favors. Rumors swirled around a train wreck of a shoot with shouting arguments on set, favoritism, and rifts between cast members. TikTok users fueled the off-the-rails press tour with scandalous commentary about who spit on who, and who…

God’s Country

When I hear the phrase God’s Country, I lean into an image of an expansive and lush prairie with streams and wildlife and maybe a pretty mountain range in the distance. Instead, this film takes us to a cold, snow-covered small town in Montana. The kind of place you might escape to if you wanted…

Gigi and Nate

Gigi and Nate is the story of a young man’s recovery journey as a quadriplegic with the help of Gigi, an adorable capuchin monkey. It’s based on true events and shares how service animals can make a huge impact on healing from life-changing events. Full disclosure, I did work background on this movie, and it’s…
