Critical MeMe

Time spent watching films, even crappy ones, is time well-spent.

    These aren't comments on ALL of the movies through which I've cried, yawned, laughed, and rolled my eyes, but just about everything I've seen since early 2002 is here plus a few from earlier. Post dates reflect my screening & parenthetical dates are the year of US release (aka Oscar eligibility).
    Yeah, a movie review blog isn't very original. But originality is overrated. Just ask Michael Bay.


Ginger & Rosa (2013)

Inseparable best friends are becoming young ladies in ‘60s London and facing the truth that they may be very different people.

Ginger is finding meaning in protesting the bomb while Rosa is much more interested in her sexuality. This is a believable, if bleak and emotionally draining, portrait of two women transitioning from childhood to womanhood.
