  2. It Felt Like Love (2013) dir. Eliza Hittman
This movie treads the murky waters of sex and it’s cringing and awkward but also dangerous and dark. It’s all about bodies and skin - love never enters the picture. It’s an interesting and watchable film and one that left me feeling a little squeamish and ,thankfully, old.

  3. A Teacher (2013) dir. Hannah Fidell
A 75 minute movie where a high school english teacher is in the middle of an affair with her football jock student. The score, which is awesomely unrelenting, tells you that this isn’t going to end well. It’s a decent watch, but I wanted more.

  4. Wristcutters: A Love Story (2006)
A tedious waste of time, like it’s trying to be an off-beat Jim Jarmusch movie (its even got Tom Waits) but failing miserably. I did like Shannyn Sossamon’s choppy hair do, so there’s that.

  5. I Used To Be Darker (2013)
This is one of those indie observational dramas with an amateur cast and decent music (should be since Ned Oldham is one of the actors here). The plot is thin and wavering but emotions run thick like molasses. I liked this well enough but it didn’t grab me.

  7. Tiger Eyes (2012)
Judy Blume was the shit when I was in grade 4 and 5. I read everything, so I was pretty excited when I heard that Tiger Eyes is the first Judy Blume novel made into a movie. The book came out in 1981 fer crissakes. The good, is that the cinematography looks like the cover of the book that I remember, lots of glowing New Mexico skies at golden hour. The rest though, is pretty precious and thin. Still, are you there god? I’d like more Judy Blume movies. Thanks.

  11. Holy Motors (2012)
A surreal and bizarre film with some striking visuals, an enjoyable accordion intermission, a couple of Sparks songs and a small homage to Les Yeux Sans Visage, but man, so not my bag.

  12. Tropical Hot Dog Night - Captain Beefheart

    I woke up with this song in my head.

  13. Short Term 12 (2013)
A small, quiet indie film about life in a group home. It verges a bit into melodrama, but it’s a nice enough movie, but it didn’t grab me like I thought it would. Oh well.

  14. Violet & Daisy (2011)
Two sexy teenage lollipop-sucking hired killers. It’s shiny, glossy and totally awful.

  15. Teenage (2013)
As a late bloomer, I’m all in when it comes to anything teenage, but this documentary about the early history of the modern adolescent is pretty dullsville.
