Quix Picks: Hell or High Water Movie Review

A ‘high water’ mark in modern day westerns that would make Cormac McCarthy proud. Directed by Scottish director David Mackenzie and written by Taylor Sheridan (Sicario – a movie I do not recommend), they give us a real feel of west Texas – complete with a posse of pickup trucks chasing the bank robbers, just […]

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them – Quix Pix

This big budget movie was probably hard to escape your notice when it was in the theaters. But if you skipped it, check it out. The big reason?

Captain America: Civil War Review by Theo Michelfeld

This insightful, intelligent review of the movie Captain America: Civil War needs to be shared. It reminded me of something essential and needed – the difference between certainty and ambiguity/curiosity and how it often equals the difference between fear/anger and connection/happiness. In my Emotional Intelligence Works team training, I explore how it’s the amygdala’s job […]

Dark City (A Quix Movie Pick)
