A few film and music recommendations.

What I did on my summer vacation.


12 and Holding. 5 stars.

Directed by Michael Cuesta. 2005.

Anabella Sciorra

Marcia DeBonis

Conor Donovan

Zoe Wiezenbaum

Jesse Camacho

“After his twin brother is accidentally killed by vengeful bullies, a disfigured 12-year old boy and his friends face the harsh realities of death, hormones, and family dysfunction.” – IMDB

So many layers in this film that after the end you’ll want to watch it again for the brilliant acting and great story telling.

The Good Life (2007). 3 stars.

Zooey Deschanel, Mark Webber, Harry Dean Stanton, Bill Paxton.

A little choppy and unexplained. 90 minute look into one boy’s whirlwind life.

Brother to Brother (2004). 3.5 stars.

Anthony Mackie, Daniel Sunjata

A drama that looks back on the Harlem Renaissance from the perspective of an elderly, black writer who meets a gay teenager in a New York homeless shelter.

In Plain Sight (USA). 5 stars. Sunday. 10/9C.

The Listener (NBC). 1 star. Thursdays 10/9C.

And finally.

I’ve been finishing off the last of our Holiday 2008 Cokes, half a year after the holiday in question. Ah, well. I like the design actually.

Stole the coke picture from this blog. (Actually from Google images, but this is the blog they pulled from and whom I am citing.)
