INDIEWIRE: 38 Movies We’d Like to See Nominated for Best Picture
THE LOST CITY OF Z
Uncommonly sumptuous, patient and textured for a movie with such little emotional heat or staying power, “The Lost City of Z” doesn’t feel like a work of mimicry or homage so much as it does an immaculately crafted throwback — this isn’t just what movies used to look like, it’s also how they used to crackle, move and hum. Oh, what a blessing! Seeing this projected in 35mm is like mana from heaven.
There’s simply no other modern American filmmaker capable of generating comedy and deep-seated suspense at the same time. “Good Time” combines anarchic sensibilities with an exacting style, its loopy plot starting in dark places and heads into willfully absurd directions before doubling back to a wakeup call. The essence of this unique directing duo’s appeal is they pin down what it feels like when crazy escapades die down and life gets real.

In spite of all of the excuses you COULD have made about not having time, not feeling motivated, being stressed out from work, being busy at home, “being old,” etc...you’re overcoming it all and are still making progress.
💪🏼 One year down, many more to go. Slow and steady.
Happy birthday, Dad!
