    ★★

    I don't know, man. I think I'm just exhausted by white culture of late.

    But this is white culture through mirrors and hear-say. The young woman is a middle-aged man's theory of a young woman. Despite John Cho's amiably tall hair, despite the immortal loveliness of Parker Posey, despite the undeniably peerless design of Girard and Saarinen on display here... the story and characters are shadows in a dorm where the dudes are rhapsodizing about Murakami again. Maybe you'll like it; I'm getting sleepy just thinking about it, my narcoleptic response borne of white angst overload.

    I keep re-watching this film in moments of existential fatigue.

    Somehow, this and Only God Forgives are a vitamin shot to my 21st century film dismay...

    The Sacrament

    Shoddy on every level, and insulting to the survivors of Jonestown. I assumed West would use the People's Temple as a jumping off point for something groundbreaking, but don't hold your breath. This is taken whole cloth from the source material, never diving beneath the surface - a lazy re-telling with no new insights. The most basic documentary on Jim Jones is infinitely more interesting, horrific and revealing than this.
