"My favorite movie about the theater is ALL ABOUT EVE, but then again that movie is my favorite movie about everything about movies and love and lust and life itself." - Jay

"TOPSY-TURVY perfectly captures the feeling of imminent failure that you get when you're in rehearsals." - Peggy

November. It's a Wrap

Tough month. I'm crawling towards the finish line of 2012 wondering if maybe the Mayans weren't right after all? 2012 has been a fine year for cinema but a tough one for me personally. Now, my true year doesn't technically end until February 22nd, 2013 OSCAR NIGHT after which I can move on to 2013 but for now I'm just relieved that 2012, the calendar year, is almost over. But enough negativity! EXCELSIOR.

In case you missed them here are ten highlights from the month that was.

Honicutt Enema iPhones must hate movies or something

Remember Moonrise a plea to AMPAS voters. Forget what feels IMPORTANT. Consider the likely longevity of this whimsical bittersweet film about lonely adolescence
Podcast Nick, Joe, Katey and I talk Lincoln and Skyfall 
The Masters of my Eyeballs on true oddities: Holy Motors and The Master
