The Woman in the Fifth is as coldly obtuse and emotionally distant as anything I’ve had the misfortune to come across this year.

Your Sister’s Sister has something universal to say about relationships, about the bonds between siblings, about how it is we choose to live our lives and the mysterious nature of the dreams, aspirations and demons that drive us forward.

Paul Williams Still Alive (2011)

f Paul Williams Still Alive does feel a bit slight that has nothing to do with the man himself. A titanic figure in the music industry, he saunters through the film with a relaxed grace that’s mesmerizing.

Moonrise Kingdom has the potential to be a movie I’ll be pondering, mulling over and thinking about for the remainder of 2012. When all is said and done it might even enter into the upper echelon of the Wes Anderson canon.
