Last week, the summer film series, My Atlas, presented by The Clockshop, screened the 1959 film The Savage Eye. The Savage Eye is a gorgeous black and white film that is part docu-essay, part drama.

BOYHOOD

14233-1

Richard Linklater’s new film Boyhood was shot over the course of 12 years. It follows the life of a boy from age 5 to 18. The film stars Patricia Arquette as the mother, and Ethan Hawke as the father, of Mason. I found the film to be surprisingly realistic in it’s portrayal of a boy growing up, […]

This week, I watched the Swedish film We Are The Best! and I remembered one of my favorite films from when I was a kid, Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains. The film is full of awesome teenage punk fashion straight out of the 1980s. I had to post more pictures. We also took a walk […]

WE ARE THE BEST!
