So I am a terrible writer about art. Cliche, cliche, and then I throw in some more cliche. It’s really hard. But writing about film helps me remember what I actually watch since I am also getting old and forget things. So I started a little film blog on the side to write short reviews of what I watch. Since the point of such things is show how much better one is than others through the writer’s self-determined superior taste, there’s also that. Anyway, I’ll throw a link to it occasionally. Here’s the first posts:
Solaris, Soderbergh, 2002
Django Unchained, Tarantino, 2012
The Artist, Hazanavicius, 2011
A Cat in Paris, Gagnol and Felicioli, 2011
At the Edge of the World, Stone and Gambuti, 2008
Life Without Principle, To, 2011
Outrage, Kitano, 2010
Vengeance, To, 2009
The River’s Edge, Dwan, 1957
Silent Souls, Fedorchenko, 2010
Happy People: A Year in the Taiga, Herzog via Vasyukov, 2010
9500 Liberty, Byler and Park, 2009

I included the director names for maximum pretension.
Feel free to argue with me over there about whatnot.
