    Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

    ★★★½

    ok letterboxd here’s the issue i’m having ... so, i rewatched international man of mystery last week and gave it 3 1/2 stars. but upon my rewatch of the spy who shagged me, i’ve determined it’s better than the first because:
    1. doesn’t have to waste time establishing the character of austin powers, thus launching us directly into the goofiness
    2. the dr. evil x mini-me dynamic <333
    3. multiple musical numbers ... more non-musicals should try this out ...…

    ★★★½

    been on a jean "queen of the screwball" arthur bend as a coping mechanism. i keep finding myself bent in half and crying for hours, too depressed to get out from under my weighted blanket or eat more than 3 toaster waffles per day. i am transitioning from being quarantined in a big house with family to self-isolating in a tiny apartment in an unfamiliar city alone with my thoughts. my dad is 1000 miles away, and every day he…

    ★★★★

    cary grant giving off big han solo vibes:

    -risk-taking pilot
    -wears cool jackets
    -constantly says “kid”
    -emotionally unavailable but tall and devastatingly handsome so girls still like him even though he treats them like shit 

    he WAS the blueprint!

    ★★★★

    so strange when cassavetes does studio films! the conventional pressures of capitalism clashes with his raw emotional style, creating this dislocated reality that whips from cliched dialogue to a patented genius gena rowlands monologue and back again. 

    together, the ultimate film power couple unpacks the false myth that being a woman makes one inherently maternal — even when gloria is taking care of the boy she’s smoking cigarettes and gangsters in front of him or calling him stupid, lol. though film…

    Day for Night

    ★★★★

    “I’d dump a guy for a film but never a film for a guy!” 

    charming, genuine, and brave enough to tell the three essential truths about filmmaking:
    - movies are more important than life
    - everyone in the cast and crew is boning each other
    - cats cannot act
