NETFLIX & CHILL #25


Murphy is an American living in Paris who enters a highly sexually and emotionally charged relationship with the unstable Electra. Unaware of the effect it will have on their relationship, they invite their pretty neighbor into their bed. (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database).

LOVE is Directed and Written by Gaspar Noe, Produced by Brahim Chioua, Vincent Maraval, Gaspar Noe, Rodrigo Teixeira, and Edouard Weil. This film to me defies the typical film review. I think that all the films I have seen from Gaspar Noe have left me feeling this way. In this film LOVE again he takes his viewers on this sexually explicit journey in the standards of American cinema, and makes it seem normal. His camera direction and stagging is unique in that it envelopes you into his world  into the world of his characters in a slow and methodical way. Yet he never takes his viewers on an A+B+C type story, but jumps around within the story and lets it unravel before your eyes in that fashion. I don’t know if he’ll ever be up for an Oscar do to his explicit yet beautiful way that his films are directed, but I hope at some point he is recognized at some point  for his genius. As for LOVE I give it 5 stars.

NETFLIX & CHILL #24


A coming of age comedy/drama for the post hip hop generation. Malcolm is a geek, carefully surviving life in The Bottoms, a tough neighborhood in Inglewood, CA filled with gangsters and drug dealers, while juggling his senior year of college applications, interviews and the SAT. His dream is to attend Harvard. A chance invitation to a big underground party leads Malcolm and his friends into an "only in Los Angeles" gritty adventure filed with offbeat characters and bad choices. If Malcolm can persevere, he'll go from being a geek, to being dope, to ultimately being himself. (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database).

DOPE is Directed and Written by  Rick Famuyiwa produced by Nina Yang Bongiovi and Forrest Whitaker. This is the type of film I’d like to make, the coming of age story with a character that develops overtime on screen. The pace of DOPE was a combination of A+B+C storytelling with a bit of character voiceover to fill the more finite details and character nuances. This film was shot in a straightforward manner with moments of stylistic camera movements. It was a believable story with much character development with the main character getting the idyllic resolution, which maybe typical of many coming of age stories. I gave DOPE 5 stars, as it held all the things I enjoy in a film story, character development, style, and a resolution that fits the message being delivered.

NETFLIX & CHILL #23



Franck and Simon are both good cops. They work as partners. But their lives take a tailspin when Simon, driving drunk, causes a tragic car wreck. A few years later, out of the police, he is forced to take matters into his own hands when his family is in danger. Written by Jiilo_Kim (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

MEA CULPA is Directed and Written by Fred Cavaye, Produced by Cyrill Colbeau-Justin, Sidonie Dumas, and Jean-Baptiste Dupont. The unraveling of this story was intriguing giving you one view of a character down on his luck in a way making you root for him. This lead to a fast paced action story. As we begin to get further into this redemptive story I felt engaged both by the action as well as the story. I even went for the plot twist that made you view the main character in a different light. I also felt the films resolution spoke well to how the story itself was setup. I give MEA CULPA 3 stars for its unique storytelling pattern and intense action sequences.

NETFLIX & CHILL #22


Irresponsible 20-something Jenny arrives in Chicago to live with her older brother Jeff, a young film-maker living a happy existence with his novelist wife Kelly and their two-year-old son. Jenny's arrival shakes up their quiet domesticity as she and her friend Carson instigate an evolution in Kelly's life and career. Meanwhile, Jenny strikes up a rocky relationship with the family's baby sitter-come-pot dealer. Written by Production (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

HAPPY CHRISTMAS Directed and written by Joe Swanberg and Produced by Peter Gilbert and Joe Swanberg I felt was an insightful look into a young family’s life as they dealt with those siblings yet to start their own family. The pace of the film was rather methodical moving along leading up to the day of Christmas. It was shot in a straightforward manner showing the action that progressed the film with little to no cinematic flair. Having seen another film from the director called DRINKING BUDDIES I can see the traits of his style in his character’s staggered and run on train of thought dialogue and free camera movements. As for HAPPY CHRISTMAS I give it 2 stars, as I was highly under whelmed with the story and its resolution feeling the characters could have been further developed.

A look at the life the dark surrealist Swiss artist, H.R.Giger shot a year before his death. (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

I liked this documentary directed and written by Belinda Sallin and produced by Marcel Hoehn. As an artist, and as one who also likes a good story. I had known of H.R. GIGER’s work as an artist and even his work in the film Alien. What I was not privy to was his dark family background and inspiration that fueled his work. Within this documentary they revealed all of the things I could want to know about such a unique artist from his lifestyle, work ethic, his love life and accession to celebrity, to the point in his twilight where he can look back at it all with accomplishment. This was a definite motivational and inspiring film to watch making me want to explore what makes me tick. For H.R. GIGER I give it 4 stars.
