Hmm. Come to think of it, Stevie Wonder stopped into Chuck Levins a few years back, so 2 degrees is well established for some...

I like how you just arrogantly assume none of us are Stevie Wonder or in a sexual relationship with Stevie Wonder.

Going against the thread title ("good movies") technically: anyone see that Many Saints of Newark thing? Woof, what a confounding mess. Movie that very perfectly encapsulates why prequels based on long-running entities are so difficult -- its very hard to balance the desire to make a film that's interesting as a standalone to one not familiar with the source material and also commit the requisite fan service. The plot of this film is in no way interesting to anyone who hasn't seen Sopranos, AND YET, it also doesn't really tonally match the original show.

I feel like people who loved Sopranos aren't going to like this -- it has neither the dark humor or pathos of the original, nor seemingly much of a message compared to any random hour of the original. It has fucking voiceovers from ghosts, for cripe's sake. And it's ostensibly this character study into this major figure in the lives of all the mob guys on Sopranos and the character is wafer thin. Just wafer thin. I come away knowing nothing interesting about Dickie Moltisanti. Nothing. But it had a twisty/reveal-y ending and I guess that's going to carry the day in the filmmakers mind.

(The poster tells us we're going to learn how Tony Soprano came to be Tony Soprano. No we don't. Like not at all. Tony Soprano seems shoehorned into a story about a dude with no understandable motivations or personality to which his connection is TENUOUS at best.)

I truly don't understand why David Simon made this. What was the point? Bad. Some OK acting performances -- young Tony's mom was awesome -- but this script was a dog.

Nomadland

I haven't, been so profoundly, deeply affected by a film like this, since My Own Private Idaho.

One of the solid, films of my lifetime.

Jesus.  It's creeping into the the psyche of all molecules of my inner soul.

"Better Than Dazed and Confused."

How, is that even possible?

Can confirm... really liked it, but depressing as all hell.

just to clear up any confusion...The Stöned Age is not depressing.
