Gerwig’s newest film ‘Lady Bird’ exudes warmth, emotion
There’s a scene somewhere towards the middle of Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird” that perfectly encapsulates the entire film. In it, 17-year-old Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) has just had her first kiss with a boy she’s crushing on, Danny (played by “Manchester by the Sea’s” Lucas Hedges). The very next scene is a wide shot as she runs down the street in the middle of the night, out of breath, and pauses to let out a scream of joy, all captured through an unmoving camera.

Soccer Mommy hits it out of the park at local punk show
For a bunch of nerds, the punk/DIY scene sure seems to have an odd fixation with sports. Just the other night, I saw a band called Soccer Mommy play a punk show at a functioning batting cage on Girard Avenue.

Netflix’s ‘Mindhunter’: well-produced, slightly boring
This past week I finished the new Netflix original series, “Mindhunter.” The series is based on a semi-autobiographical book written by John Douglas, who used to work for the FBI and now writes books about his experiences in it. I was originally attracted to the show because I saw that one of my favorite directors, David Fincher, was directing four of the 10 episodes. The series is very similar to Fincher’s 2007 movie “Zodiac,” which details the search for the infamous serial killer. “Mindhunter” is fictional, but does feature portrayals of some real-life serial killers like Edmund Kemper and Richard Speck.
