There’s only two films scheduled for release, so I did this post early. As always during this time of year, there’s already a lot out, like La La Land, or Moonlight. Or Office Christmas Party, when you need a break from the high brow.
Ocean Waves is a Studio Ghibli film from 1993; the film aired in Japan on television and is receiving its limited theatrical release this weekend with a DVD release this spring. I hate to say no to Ghibli. The film is about a young man who befriends and falls in love with a new student, at the risk of his friendship with his best friend.
Paterson is a film from Jim Jarmusch starring Adam Driver as a man named Paterson who drives a city bus in Paterson, New Jersey. Paterson is also a poet with a wife, a dog, and a quiet social life at the neighborhood bar.
