Four Favorites: Marya E. Gates on Little Women, Jane Campion and denim butts

Classic film enthusiast, writer, California native, and prog rock fan Marya E. Gates discusses her four favorites: Little Women (the Winona Ryder one); Bright Star; Under the Tuscan Sun; and Crossing Delancey. Also: the joys of a nice ass in a pair of tight denim (“I firmly believe that almost anybody’s butt looks good in a nicely fitted pair of jeans”), 4K butts, Pickle Man appreciation, Jane Campion’s mastery of chaste eroticism and the hotness of Gabriel Byrne.
