This past week took me forever to get through an audio commentary (aka non-chemical sleeping pills) but I got on a better roll afterwards:
- The Graduate (1967) – This movie is still REQUIRED, but the audio commentary by director Mike Nichols and Steven Soderbergh isn’t. It felt like more of a conversation than actually discussing what was taking place onscreen, though I enjoyed learning about the editing/pacing decisions from Nichols.
- Zootopia (2016) – Wonderful political allegory about prejudice and tolerance, disguised as a family film about talking animals. REQUIRED.
- Iron Man 2 (2010) – Essentially, a rehash of Iron Man 1. NOT RECOMMENDED.
- Brooklyn (2015) – My second time with this movie was even more emotional, from a greater understanding of the story and choices our heroine Eilis is facing. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
What did you see last week?
