    The reunion scene between Dumbo and Mama Elephant in the original animated film never fails to bring tears to my eyes.

    The ending of every dog movie where the kid feels sad and goes outside and hears a distant bark in the distance, squints out into the woods and see the dog emerge over the horizon. As hackneyed as a frantic run through an airport or a shootout in a warehouse. and you know its coming ten miles away but I still well up like a sap every. single. time. Even Snoopy Come Home had a variation on this where Woodstock is whistling their little ease on down the road tune while flipping down the bird bath and then he hears Snoopy whistling his part. I am always reminded of this during the Come What May finale in Moulin Rouge which I feels plays out identically, and if I am a few beers in when either movie swells I am a puddle of tears and joy. Until….The….End….Of……….time.

"There is, of course, an eerie prescience to She Dies Tomorrow, not just in its depiction of a pandemic (however absurd this particular one may be) but also in its bleak, spellbinding solitude; an existential plague, it turns out, is almost as effective as our current, real-life one in alienating us from each other."

The Ross Brothers: "There’s not one film of Altman’s that we don’t like, but Nashville is the holy grail. When we first saw it, we were so blown away that a film could feel so natural and lived in, and that influenced the way we thought about movies and made them from then on. On the surface it feels like just a bunch of interconnected moments, but a deeper reading shows that it’s about the fatality of America. Then there’s the editing, the use of sound, and the curious camera, which seems to be wandering, making us privy to every conversation it’s focused on. If we were ranking Altman films, this would be one through ten."

Max Richter: "Throughout my 20s and 30s I worked constantly. Weekends were nonexistent; I worked on multiple paid jobs to support my own creative projects. Now I have the luxury of taking this time off, I’m religious about protecting my weekends. Our lives are data-saturated.It’s psychologically demanding to live on screens 24/7. Sundays are for switching off. I treasure the time for recuperation."
