Mrs Brown (1997) | a dull, dry period drama (although lacking the drama bit) that feels strongly of the sort that was made in the mid-90s.

Point and Shoot (2014) | this has received overwhelmingly rave reviews and just won the Best Documentary Feature prize at Tribeca yesterday, and while the footage is incredible, there’s something fundamentally wrong and revoltingly vain about glorifying one reckless and privileged American man-child’s fantasy of becoming an adventurer in a far off land (in this case, Libya) and being a revolutionary in someone else’s war.

Noah (2014) | a part of me is so glad that Darren Aronofsky got the chance to basically make a bold, big ass budget experimental film, but the other part of me feels like it was such a waste of funds due to its batshit insanity, especially in the second half of the film.

Last Days in Vietnam (2014) | this documentary covers the harrowing true story of the evacuation of the American Embassy in Saigon, and while there are some incredible moments, overall the film is a little staid and “tv.”

E-Team (2014) | this is an incredible and raw documentary that follows members of Human Rights Watch’s E-Team (Emergencies Team) as they document and report on atrocities that happen throughout the world. you’ll end up feeling thankful knowing that these incredible people are out there in the world, fighting the bad guys.

Frozen (2014) | i’m so happy about the success of this film and the fact that it was directed by a woman (and a CU alum to boot), but i’m gonna dissent and say that i didn’t totally love this film.

"I love Kools"

A moment of levity: a simple, funny outtake from Paul Thomas Anderson’s 2012 film, The Master, in which Hoffman and Phoenix struggle to keep from laughing. Allow this in and let it be the much-needed, lighter moment on an awful day like today, the antidote to all the crap you don’t want to know about Hoffman’s death (and, really, we shouldn’t know the details, they are literally none of our business).

Instead, watch this guy work, and see all the light in him.

so unexpected and terribly sad. a true actor and—from i’ve heard from friends and strangers recounting meeting PSH—a humble man, too. as people have shared their favorite roles/clips from his career (and there are SO many fantastic an iconic ones), i kept going “oh yeah, he was in that one too*!” he had an amazing run and it really fucking sucks that we won’t see more great work from this man. RIP PSH.
