Smiley Face | 2007 | dir. Gregg Araki
I laughed my ass off watching Anna Faris, who gives one of the best comedic performances of the decade, get high, make mistakes, and eat some snacks in this trippy pothead comedy, which has became an instant favorite of mine.

de-lawn said: I'm not sure if this has been asked before, but…when it comes to a movie with a post-credit scene (like Marvel), do you take the final image before the credits or after the post-credit scene?
Thanks for your question! For the sake of interpretive poignancy, we select the final image that concludes the “A” story, which is usually the last shot (or series of shots) immediately preceding the end credits. If a scene surprises us after the credits, we give that it’s own distinction, almost as if it were a short film of its own. It’s exciting how the post-credits sequence (or final final image) is blossoming into a conventional standard in cinema. But as we all know, there are few rules in stone.

Mean Creek | 2004 | dir. Jacob Aaron Estes
All the young actors in this peek at adolescence and blooming manhood are excellent, especially Rory Culkin, who displays the perfect level of timid aliveness and gives potentially the best performance by any Culkin ever, and the persistent presence of grimness thanks to the direction, cinematography, and score was quite an impressive and affective feat.

What to Watch! Theatrical Releases for the Week of August 22, 2014.
MOVIES ARE STILL COMING OUT IN THEATERS, FOLKS. And as per usual, the independent circuit seems to be the most interesting in terms of releases. One of the movies this week happens to be an absolute favorite of mine, and perhaps one of my favorites of the year. Let’s get into it so I can zoom past all the poor looking stuff!
