Mud (2012)
I absolutely loved this movie. Such great performances. Such a great story that it felt like it could have been adapted from a piece of classic literature. I've now seen all three of writer/director Jeff Nichols' movies and all of them are amazing. This guy is quickly becoming one of my favorite filmmakers.

Mud is spell-bounding. As far as understated "southern drama" goes I'd say it's the best thing since Sling Blade. Better, really.

Today was a rainy Sunday so I watched The Omega Man for the first time, and loved it.

Have you seen Nichols' other movies, Take Shelter and Shotgun Stories? If you haven't, check them out. If loved Mud, you'll love them.

Heh. I love that movie too. The Last Man on Earth is worth watching as well.

I have not seen The Last Man on Earth. But I definitely will now that I'm on that roll.

Jeff Nichols is a genius whose films make me feel that I've wasted whatever talent I was born with, and I have watched Take Shelter (love it). I've not seen Shotgun Stories yet.

He is. He really is. Shotgun Stories is amazing. I can't even decide which is my favorite of his three movie because all of them are so fantastic. I'm really looking forward to his next movie, which is supposed to be a sci-fi movie inspired by 1980s John Carpenter films, Starman in particular. Kind of a change in direction but I can totally see how he'd be able to pull it off.

Take Shelter is science fiction-ISH. So I can totally see him doing that. Nichols is the real deal.

Blue Is The Warmest Color - Abdellatif Kechiche - 2013

Just fucking gorgeous. The graphic novel has made the rounds on my and my coworkers staff pick shelves at the bookstore for months, it's one of those things you can't help but pass on. I had no idea when I started the film that it was three hours long, but I didn't feel the length of it a bit. As a fan of queer cinema I don't hesitate to call this work groundbreaking. The directing is perfect, the acting is perfect, the story is so real it's devastating.

Spell-bounding eh?

I need to see both Mud and Blue Is The Warmest. I hear the sex is great.

Campy, funny, pretty stupid. Lots of butt puns. Would recommend for a light-hearted evening.

It really is. The films main criticism is that the sex scenes are gratuitous and pornographic but anyone who's read the novel knows how important it is to the plot line.
