March 2019 in Films


March was a pretty crazy month for me. As you may have seen on Twitter, I announced that I left my job at TCM to take a job at Netflix.

Max: I’m too nostalgic. I’ll admit it.
Skippy: We graduated four months ago. What can you possibly be nostalgic for?
Max: I’m nostalgic for conversations I had yesterday. I’ve begun reminiscing events before they even occur. I’m reminiscing this right now. I can’t go to the bar because I’ve already looked back on it in my memory. . .and I didn’t have a good time.

Ivan Schrank: Birthdays are hard, man.

Ivan Schrank: I know. Youth is wasted on the young.
Roger Greenberg: I’d go further. I’d go: Life is wasted on people.
