TONGUES UNTIED (1989)

A documentary featuring the voices of Black gay men, which in 1989 was enough almost to turn Washington upside down.

JURASSIC PARK (1993)

Perhaps the best of the Steven Spielberg popcorn movies, with dinosaur effects that incredibly still hold up 28 years later.

WANDA (1970)

An early independent film about a “born loser” woman who “doesn’t know why she exists.” So that’s fun.

APOLLO 13 (1995)

A very accurate, well-made docudrama about an actual space emergency, it all feels a bit airless to me (sorry).

MISHIMA: A LIFE IN FOUR CHAPTERS (1985)

The story of famous Japanese author who also had his own private army and tried to overthrow the government, as one does, told in such a highly stylized manner that I honestly lost track of it.

RIO BRAVO (1959)

A very well-made, enjoyable western with John Wayne as a stoic small-town sheriff and Dean Martin as his alcoholic deputy.

LOSING GROUND (1982)

A very low-budget 1980s film with concerns far more esoteric than your average movie, which wouldn’t be rediscovered until decades later.

THE 36TH CHAMBER OF SHAOLIN (1978)

A highly-influential (and deeply cheesy) kung fu movie, without which we not have “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” or a slew of previous martial arts films.
