Joey’s Home Movies For the Week of July 24th – ‘Paint’ Leads an Uninspiring Palette

Welcome back to my Home Movies! Today, we unfortunately don’t have much hitting shelves. In fact, the top pick, Paint, isn’t even a film I particular like. That’s just what the slate is this week. Alas. All the more reason to enjoy Barbenheimer. Read on for more…

Joey’s Top Pick

IFC Films


This satirical comedy is an odd duck, one that I never fully got on board with. At the same time, Owen Wilson is very good. He commits fully to a very silly role and does more with it than he potentially even needed to. Paint only works, if it even does, because of Wilson. My review here on the site includes the following:

Owen Wilson is a saving grace here, even if he can’t hold everything up on his own. Wilson probably could have actually played Bob Ross, though that’s not the goal here. He’s interestingly odd…Filmmaker Brit McAdams certainly goes all in on the premise, that much is undeniable.

One False Move

From The Criterion Collection: “A small-town police chief (Bill Paxton) concealing an explosive secret. A pair of ruthless drug dealers (cowriter Billy Bob Thornton and Michael Beach) who leave a bloody trail in their wake as they make their way from Los Angeles to Arkansas. And an enigmatic woman (Cynda Williams) caught in the middle. The way these desperate lives converge becomes a masterclass in slow-burn tension thanks to the nuanced direction of Carl Franklin, whose haunting film travels a crooked road across America’s most fraught divisions—urban and rural, Black and white—while imbuing noir conventions with a wrenching emotional depth.”

Stay tuned for more next week…
