    I love Short Cuts, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, Our Hospitality, Sherlock Jr. and Housekeeping 🙂 I have not seen The Card Counter or the Candyman remake yet 🙂 Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂

    This appears to be the last 8 movies you saw! Glad to see you liked “The Card Counter.” After “First Reformed,” it seems Schrader is having a much-needed, late-career creative comeback. COVID theatrical exhibition vacuum has placed it in a lot of theaters, but making as much as it would have in a handful. Mainstream theaters are ghost towns unless a Marvel movie opens. Quite sad. “Housekeeping” is terrific, but hard to live up to that novel…my favorite.

      It IS the last 8 movies I saw! There will be a lot of repeats on my lists going forward since I’m teaching 7(!) classes for the fall semester. Hope you get out of Twitter jail (or whatever it is)!

        Still unclear if I was in Twitter jail or hacked (their piss-poor communication made me suspect it’s all data mining), but either way I declined to give them my phone number and decided to delete my account. No Twitter or FB until if and when I have something to promote. Realize I am missing out on some cultural bulletins, but this book influenced me a lot: https://www.calnewport.com/books/digital-minimalism/

        Anyway, I will make a point to try and keep up with your work. Best of luck on the new film.

    I consider Sherlock Jr. one of the greatest films ever made.
