Near Dark

  This film isn’t for the squeamish. It is vampires without any of the window dressing or frills. It is, oddly, the most elegant inelegant film, I’ve ever seen. I think, for me, it is likely that I’d have never said another word about this film after the […]

Saying Goodbye to 2018

I’m going to begin this post with an excerpt from a writing of Joan Didion. I’m telling you this only so that you’ll know that isn’t to be the entirety of this post. “Some years passed, but I still did not lose the sense of wonder about New […]

Unlimited

Unlimited You know what a woman wants? A badass son of a bitch who can make the trip and still treat her like the most precious being on the planet. A man whoโ€™s really a gentleman, even if sometimes she doesnโ€™t act like much of a lady. She […]
