This Instagram sized cinematic feat from a 25 year prodigiously mature Xavier Dolan will rip your heart out and send shivers down your spine. Examining the strength and frailties of a motherly bond cannot be captured more eloquently than this! Bravo. (at TIFF Bell Light Box)

This sequel to ‘the trip’ serves up mimicry, food porn, mild adultery in equal doses, enough to forget that it’s a spectacular road trip through the Italian riviera. (at Lincoln Plaza Cinemas)

If you thought leos carax holy motors was insanely brilliant, watch this earlier work. A boy’s heartbreak and his subsequent pursuit of a girl fighting a toothing problem of vanity and existentialism. (at Film Forum)

    I’m watching Dawn of the Planet of the Apes



“Finally caught up! A glorious reminder of how vice and vulnerability is waiting to penetrate pristine morality and virtues. At what point exactly do our thoughts and motives become devious?”

In my greatest moments of trauma, bereavement, restlessness and guilt, if there is one thing that never failed to transport, tranquilize and absolve me, it’s cinema. Watching Ebert fall in love with cinema with a sweet brute force, an unapologetic arrogance in the best and worst of his times was emphatic testament to why I need to be transported, tranquilized and absolved, why cinema is an essential instrument to face the future of uncertainty, of glorious misgivings and delayed reminders of how we should make the best of what life has to offer us. Thank you Mr Ebert( @ebertchicago )for leaving behind memories of 
cinema that only cinema can convey. (at Film Society Lincoln Center)
