Lindsay's nailing it tonight.

YES. (Also, what is this from/who is this female director?!)

Catherine Hardwicke, I think.

44. Life Itself (Steve James, 2014)
I started crying within the first minute of this. Touching and funny.

I earned some girlfriend points for this.

42. The Thin Blue Line (Errol Morris, 1988)
This blew me away. I wasn’t expect it to have such an impact, since it’s been so widely imitated and the techniques it pioneered have become standard. Despite the imitation, the original still packs a punch. It’s so good!

40. Jersey Boys (Clint Eastwood, 2014)
I saw this in a packed theater with many old people, who seemed to enjoy it. It makes me really excited for the Backstreet Boys biopic musical that had better exist by the time I’m 70. 
As for the movie itself, … yikes. Awful. I get the sense the stage musical is fun in a cheesy, “your mom will love this” kind of way, but the the film captures none of that energy.

The best part of this DVD

Sarah (Maslany) is in a desperate race to find her missing daughter, but her scorched earth tactics spark a war with Rachel (Maslany), dividing and imperiling all the clones (Maslany, Maslany, Maslany).


Maslany, Maslany, Maslany!
I imagine it being said like Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!

“But even more novel is the way Obvious Child handles the idea of abortion: not as an earth-shattering event that permanently derails a woman’s path in life, but as a decision that’s a bit unsettling, a bit inconvenient, often necessary – and occasionally funny. “You’re going to kill it,” Stern’s best friend Nellie (played by Gaby Hoffman, who, yes, is also on Girls) tells her before a stand-up set the night before her procedure is scheduled. “Tomorrow I am,” Stern cracks, and the two unravel in sheepish giggles. There’s no hand-wringing, no overt politics. The abortion is just a thing – one of many things – that happens in Donna’s life.” (via)

I loved this movie & Jenny Slate & everything about it & you should definitely see it.

39. Obvious Child (Gillian Robespierre, 2014)
This was fantastic. It is both a very funny, very good romantic comedy and a refreshingly honest take on abortion. Its politics are important, but it’s also damn entertaining. Worth seeing for so many different reasons.
And now I’m going to dance around my apartment to Paul Simon.

“Creating a life that reflects your values and satisfies your soul is a rare achievement. In a culture that relentlessly promotes avarice and excess as the good life, a person happy doing his own work is usually considered an eccentric, if not a subversive. Ambition is only understood if it’s to rise to the top of some imaginary ladder of success. Someone who takes an undemanding job because it affords him the time to pursue other interests and activities is considered a flake. A person who abandons a career in order to stay home and raise children is considered not to be living up to his potential-as if a job title and salary are the sole measure of human worth.
You’ll be told in a hundred ways, some subtle and some not, to keep climbing, and never be satisfied with where you are, who you are, and what you’re doing. There are a million ways to sell yourself out, and I guarantee you’ll hear about them.
To invent your own life’s meaning is not easy, but it’s still allowed, and I think you’ll be happier for the trouble.”
