  1. I really want to watch When We First Met on netflix, but it stars Adam Devine, and that's a problem for me

  2. For those unable to get to the Music Box, Classic Cinemas out here in the west suburbs of Chicago is running Bombshell for their First Tuesday Club on March 6th, when I'm going to try and catch it.

  3. If Riske ever becomes my Valentine, I'll tell him that he makes me feel like the luckiest bench.

  4. Patrick's mention of Nekromantik immediately made me think of Kissed (1996) as a very unconventional romance story. Certainly not for everybody and I'm still not even sure how I feel about it. It's not the first movie to tackle necrophilia, but it's not doing it for horror or shock value and is actually a romance movie in its own tragic way.

    1. I'm definitely watching Kissed some time soon. Never heard of it! Thank you Ross.

      I would also suggest Lune froide ('Cold moon'), a 1991 French movie tackling the subject, within a larger story about two lost, sad and violent souls. To me, it feels like a bittersweet poem about love (or lack thereof) and loneliness. And it was produced by none other than... Luc Besson! Back when he made really interesting and daring artistic choices.

  6. I saw the Oscar nominated shorts this weekend and JB is right on the money; those films are HEAVY. Thankfully there was one lighthearted one in the mix as it was definitely needed. Although I don't think anyone in my theater was ready for "Dekalb Elementary" unfortunately due to the timing of recent events.
