    I found out it was Kurosawa's birthday after I started this, a very happy accident

    I like coming into adaptations of stories I've never read, it leaves me with no expectations and a surprising journey. The sadness that creeps into this was especially surprising, it can hit very hard.

    I think I don't connect with this as much as I just think it is astoundingly well made though, but goodness is it well made. Every Kurosawa I've seen has been…

    Elevator to the Gallows


    From minute one I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that I would love it. It was going to be one of those perfect doomed romance crime stories and it was coming out of the gate already full tilt.

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things


    This had 5 star potential, I was in love with the first half. The suspense, the discomfort, the mood, the dialogue, I was unbelievably hooked. Then it's like the movie tripped walking down a hill and just started tumbling faster and faster. The mood started to break, the fascinating became the nonsensical, the pretention reared its head, and then poof: nothing. It totally and completely lost me. I can't overstate my disappointment. At least the filmmaking itself was good I guess.

    Jessie Buckley is astounding though, please put her in more movies
