A nearly perfect movie about a nearly total screw-up.

August 30, 2009
Might be my favorite example of a movie that compels you toward binaristic assumptions but keeps outwitting them, with its immersed conviction in the palpable, sonic, psychological, atmospheric world that it inhabits and constructs.

January 1, 2000
A painful though sadly humorous portrait of sisterhood deftly written by Leigh's mom, Barbara Turner, and directed with just-right spareness by Ula Grosbard.

Unless you're just dying to hear Velvet Underground tunes played (badly) at bar mitzvahs, I'd recommend keeping this Georgia off your mind.
