Trailer - Gone Girl
Directed by David Fincher. Based on the novel by Gillian Flynn. Starring Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike (perfect casting), Tyler Perry, Neil Patrick Harris, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit, Scoot McNairy and Missi Pyle.
I really loved the book and I think Fincher captures it perfectly. This looks like it could be really great. So curious as how they re-wrote the ending. Can’t wait to see it.
In theaters October 3rd.
There’s a new web series from Issa Rae Productions and I’ve already declared it my favorite one yet.
Created and written by Jahmela Biggs, the series premiere of First was incredibly sweet and charming and featured some really beautifully shot scenes. There was something about this simple yet spirited black love relationship between Robin and Charles that got me a little into my ~feelings~.
There’s also a handsome poet with a buttery rich voice licking his lips, which — OKAY. YOU GOT ME.

"The High" by Kelela
Instantly obsessed with this one. The super steady beat reminds me of the earlier, more experimental r&b aesthetic of Little Dragon. This is practically a missing puzzle piece. The thrum of that synth is everything.
I love this girl. Cut 4 Me was one of my favs last year.
Last week I had the opportunity to catch a screening of The Grand Budapest Hotel. Big thanks to my awesome friend, Cameron at Fox Searchlight. It was every bit a Wes Anderson pic which why of course I loved it. The film was definitely darker and bloodier for an Anderson film. If you have seen his other films and then see this one you will know what I mean. Even though all his film have some dark undertones despite always being precious. As usual it was a visual delightful with an always interesting cast of characters and some very hilarious moments. Ralph Fiennes is so much fun to watch and looks like he was having a great time in his performance. It’s really hard for me to be objective being such a fan of all of Anderson’s films. I’ll admit this one might be lower on my rankings of his film but it was definitely a joy to watch and that’s all I can hope for.
