    Might be a translation thing but I thought it was really funny that as a result of years of malaise Allan “became a dreamer” like it was some sort of grim consequence.

    Beautiful images. A little stately in the pacing department for my taste but babies born the week this movie came out were afraid of rock music by the time I was born so I can look the other way on that. Almost feels like a silent film so…

    One of the enduring images of cinema is a starving skinny guy looking at a fat guy and the fat guy turns into a hamburger. And then the fat guy looks at the skinny guy and the skinny guy turns into a hot dog. I would put it up there with the dance of death from The Seventh Seal but everybody has their own personal iconography. It’s okay if you can’t go there with me, although I am objectively correct.

    Bugs Bunny is absolutely moving with intent to kill in this one; not always a given with Jones but always appreciated.

    It rules that Bong Joon-Ho anticipates you anticipating a twist where the rich family is smarter than they appear and then pulls the rug out from under you to reveal that they’re actually even dumber and more casually cruel than you originally thought. That’s radical realism, baby.

    I was sitting next to the entrance and during the sex scene a guy walked into the wrong theater, went “nope,” and walked back out.
