    It’s hard enough to write a good script in a consistent voice but a cohesive screenplay comprised of the voices of its own characters is an achievement in itself. Add to that the fact the film is comprised of meticulously delicate and thoughtful visuals, pitch perfect performances, and awe inspiring production design and you’ve got a special project on your hands.

    I’ve never understood the critique that the film is lacking in emotion because for me this might be Anderson’s…

    The Graduate but instead of trying to fuck each other everyone just talked about their feelings. Needless to say, I loved it.

    β€œI wanted to smother the audience with specificity.” - Richard LinklaterΒ 


    Death. Taxes. Richard Linklater making amazing coming of age movies.Β 

    Auto-biographical and impressionistic, this one is clearly for the Linklater die-hards. For a kid growing up in a place with no sense of the past, it only makes sense that Linklater has made up for that with a filmography based significantly on his own memory.Β 

    As an aside: Fuck Netflix for not promoting this at all and for not allowing me to see this in a theater where it so clearly begs to be viewed.

    When the lights came up in the theater after Vortex ended, everyone just sat in silence. It might have been the quietest I’ve ever heard a group of people leave any room ever.

    The raw unflinching brutality that NoΓ© is known for is here, make no mistake. However, it is much quieter and much more sinister than his usual showcase of pain and anguish. The decaying of your mind isn’t a drug trip you get to wake up from. It’s…

    A desperate, primal cry for a world obsessed with the future and what might be, to focus on the present and what is. In a just world this would be the highest grossing film of the year. It does everything you could want a film to do. I laughed, cried, and everything in between.

    Thanks to Kan Kan for the opportunity to see this a little early and thanks to Ryan of Son Lux for letting us into the creative…

    This really snuck up on me. I was into the mystery but felt emotionally unattached until that ending wow. The messaging of The Batman moves past the The Dark Knight’s post-9/11 reactionary politics in such a powerful and emotionally resonant way. Not to mention it looks absolutely gorgeous throughout. Kinda loved this, might see it again in theaters.
