Films to soothe the soul
Interesting
It would be all too simple to reel off a list of the golden oldies, for a mere ten seconds on the internet and you'll find yourself with some website barking at you as to why you haven't seen Citizen Kane yet. Have you been living in a fucking cave? I, however, think we should be forgiven for not always wanting to watch the classics, for these all too often subscribe to some cinematic bucket list of snobbery that ever so slightly bullies you into enjoying them. Sometimes you're just not in the mood for something that won ten Oscars and details the life of a junkie mass murderer with terminal cancer. And that's fine.

The Films Of Cameron Crowe: A Retrospective
Interesting
Cameron Crowe is 55 today. For a certain generation he's been a figurehead for his journalism, his screenwriting, and for his direction. Crowe has always been inspired by Billy Wilder, and while he might lack Wilder's satirical bite, few directors can claim to mix laughter, tears, romance and emotion in the way that Crowe has. A look at his best films here.
