When artists pass, we do 'Essentials' lists—I wanted to pay tribute while this actor was still around. Jack Nicholson was such a key part of my formative moviegoing experience that I couldn't pick what my favorite Jack performance. So I picked 25 of 'em.

Have been referring to THE POWER OF THE DOG as 'Power of the D' for short to folks when they ask what I recommend they see, and in retrospect I have a feeling that some folks are going to be a wee bit disappointed

I really hope Cumberbatch and Smit-McPhee give each other their awards and then it just turns into the whole last 30 mins of the movie live onstage...

Now this is more like it: New York Film Critics Circle gives three awards to "The Power of the Dog," including director Jane Campion and actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

Being a moron at the end, naturally, but given I've seen 'Film Twitter' referred to a few times today, including how it always craps on Spielberg when my timeline is filled with Spielberg praise... what are the parameters here?

What, exactly, constitutes being part of #FilmTwitter... just tweeting about films? B/c you see it referred to as this monolithic entity, but also does the fact that I'm too tired to include a screen shot or GIF of the 2001 monolith with this tweet also disqualify me?

"The staff then 'invited themselves' to throw their own feces at the gentleman, as if they were angry monkeys at a zoo who were faced with an odious, offensive predator."

'Nightmare Alley' contains single shots that are better than some other director's entire filmographies. You don't doubt a @RealGDT film will be darkly exquisite, but this is one to luxuriate in. You can tell that he & @SunsetGunShot were in noir heaven (hell) cooking it up x 1/2

There is a 99% chance that, because of YELLOWJACKETS, I’ll be purchasing a ‘Death to the Pixies’ t-shirt in the next 72 hours.

Why do I get so insanely happy every time "Thieves" by Ministry comes on in my shuffle, and has my air-drill game now superseded my air-guitar and air-drumming game, in this TED Talk I will

I wrote about the majestic To Sleep With Anger for the @Criterion release. Re-sharing on the occasion of @FilmLinc's fantastic celebration of Danny Glover's work as a performer, producer and all-round icon:

I spent a weekend in Toronto watching Guillermo del Toro finish NIGHTMARE ALLEY, and I can confirm he's the sweetest, smartest, funniest, most generous film nerd to ever stage a man biting the heads off chickens. Also the movie is more or less perfect.
