Punch-Drunk Love (2002)
I don’t know if there is anything wrong because I don’t know how other people are.
Dolores del Rio: A Mexican from a affluent family, Dolores set out to become an actress after her family lost their wealth after the Mexican Revolutionary War. She may not be a household name, but in Mexico she is the quintessential face of femininity and is considered something of mythical status throughout Latin America. Even Marlene Dietrich considered her friend Dolores “The most beautiful woman”. Before Rita Hayworth, it was Dolores that was wrapped around Orson Welles arm. She was popular with American audiences in the 20s, 30s and 40s, and starred alongside Fred and Ginger, Anthony Quinn, Sophia Loren, James Stewart and even Elvis Presley. But once it became hard to find good roles and make box office hits in Hollywood, she left to Mexico to revive her film career. She didn’t come back to Hollywood until the 60’s.

Noah: Darren Aronofsky made a movie that is basically The Shining on a giant boat but managed to make it boring as hell. Well done, sir.
Finding Vivian Maier: This is a documentary about nanny that was secretly the world’s greatest street photographer. It is entertaining and interesting, although the film focuses a bit too much on complaining about why its subject is under appreciated rather than letting her work speak for itself.
The Other Woman: Googling “Kate Upton’s boobs” for 107 minutes would be a more entertaining and intellectually stimulating investment of your time.
