Daughters of the Dust (1991)

I am the first and the last. I am the honored one and the scorned one. I am the whore and the holy one. I am the wife and the virgin. I am the barren one and many are my daughters. I am the silence that you can not understand. I am the utterance of my name.

"It’s that thing when you’re with someone, and you love them and they know it, and they love you and you know it… but it’s a party… and you’re both talking to other people, and you’re laughing and shining… and you look across the room and catch each other’s eyes… but - but not because you’re possessive, or it’s precisely sexual… but because… that is your person in this life. And it’s funny and sad, but only because this life will end, and it’s this secret world that exists right there in public, unnoticed, that no one else knows about. It’s sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us, but we don’t have the ability to perceive them. That’s - That’s what I want out of a relationship. Or just life, I guess." - Frances Ha (2012)

I would just like to draw attention to the fact that the poster for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986) totally apes the poster for The Breakfast Club (1985).

I think that deserves some recognition.

Harlem Nights 1989

An absolutely great film.

» Critics hated this film. A prime example of white people not understanding a thing, so they shit all over the thing, point to it, and call it crap. Eddie was so upset by the critical failure, he didn’t watch the movie for years. He appreciates it now for what it is, but can you imagine working so hard on something you love with people you admire, putting it out in the world and then having it trashed?

This movie is amazing. It’s hilarious. One of Eddie Murphy’s best. The writing is on point. The direction is on point. It’s a cult classic in the black community, because we know gold when we see it.

If you haven’t seen Harlem Nights get your life and get it done.
