Jose Gives Thanks ♥︎

by Jose Solis

Josehere.Perhaps more than any other year,I'm grateful for the fact that we made it.We survived!Despite of the government,natural disasters,the news,and especially the white patriarchy,we are still around.So this year I won't take the turkey and trimmings for granted.Every bite of pumpkin pie will feel like a blessing.

So this year I'd like to give thanks for the following:

• Nicole Kidman atCannes,Nicole Kidman at theEmmys,Nicole Kidman at theCMT Awards,Nicole Kidman inDeer,BeguiledNicole Kidman,Nicole inDior,Nicole's parrots at the SAG awards.

• The No Man's Land scene inWonder Woman.Still the most electrifying moment I've seen in any movie this year.

• Kate Winslet inWonder Wheel.

• Cosmo Jarvis inLady Macbeth.

Josh O'Connor inGod's Own Country.

...Come to think about it,anybrooding European dude in a movie set in the country.

• Making myNew York Times debutby writing about one of my favorite movies turned Broadway musical.

• The mindfuckery ofmother!

• Agnes Varda's chubby toes inFaces Places.

• Pésinging "Granada"inThe Queen of Spain.

• Audra McDonald singing her heart out mid-orgasm inHello Again.

• RiRi inValerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

• The warmth and kindness ofPrincess Cyd.

Jose (the bearded one on the right) learned how to speak English by memorizingBambiwhen he was a toddler.He has loved the movies ever since and will forever be grateful to Nathaniel for giving him his first opportunity to write for an American outlet.Upon moving to NYC he started atorrid affair with theatreand became a member of the Drama Desk;however,he comes home to cuddle with the movies every night.
