10th Anniversary: A SERIOUS MAN

"I have never seen a film that mixes laugh-out-loud comedy so intimately with dead serious philosophical questioning. It packs so much into its short runtime. " - Dr strange

"This movie is one of my favorites - Michael Stuhlbarg the biggest reason, he's so heartbreakingly fantastically good in everything." -Rebecca

Aubrey Plaza reviewing creepy dolls from the movies (and TV) because apparently she's in the Child's Play remake or something. While watching this had a sudden flashback to her movie Ingrid Goes West. Remember how unexpectedly good that was?

I'd be opposed to a new season of Russian Doll if I thought Natasha Lyonne would get a better role, break, project or vehicle from Hollywood. I'll look forward to S2 and even more so to the next project she produces for herself.

Yay for Timothy Hughes, a lovely tall drink of water, indeed. I'd forgotten that he was the guy who snatched a pro-Trump sign from an obnoxious patron during the curtain call at Frozen a while back. He's hot *and* political in the best way! (swoon)
