Here is what I watched in March.
Bringing Up Baby (dir. Howard Hawkes, 1938)
I wonder… How many times will I watch Bringing Up Baby this year?
The Amazing Spider Man (dir. Marc Webb, 2012)
Apparently this movie was good enough to get a sequel and apparently Shailene Woodley is too ugly to play Mary Jane. Am I supposed to care about any of this?
Big Fish (dir. Tim Burton, 2003)
Monsieur Lazhar (dir. Philippe Falardeau, 2011)
17 Filles (dir. Delphine and Muriel Coulin, 2011)
The Cider House Rules (dir. Lasse Hallström, 1999)
I should add The Cider House Rules to list of movies I did not fully understand when I was 14. Except I was probably about 12 when I saw it and I totally missed out on the entire “Doctor provides abortions” subplot.
The Pirate (dir. Vincente Minnelli, 1948)
I don’t care for The Pirate but any dance number with Gene Kelly and the Nicholas Brothers is worth watching and rewatching… and rewatching…
Spring Breakers (dir. Harmony Korine, 2013)
The most perplexing movie I have seen so far this year.
Smart Money (dir. Alfred E. Green, 1931)
Celeste and Jesse Forever (dir. Lee Toland Krieger, 2012)
Ginger & Rosa (dir. Sally Potter, 2012)
Elle Fanning, guys. Elle Fanning. I’m excited to see the direction her career goes in now that she is working with directors like Sally Potter.
Bachelorette (dir. Leslye Headland, 2012)
Bachelorette benefits from having a strong cast that carries the film when the writing and raunch cannot.
