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.

Finding Vivian Maier (2014)

Guy buys a whole bunch of negatives at a storage unit auction. The photos are brilliant, so he becomes consumed with getting them attention and with finding out more about the artist.

Vivian seems to be the type of person who was mysterious for the sake of being mysterious -- at one point even calling herself "The Mystery Woman" on tape -- and that's a whole lot less interesting to me than just being a person. But I have to admit that her photos are wonderful. The work deserves to be seen.
