    The Velvet Underground

    ★★★★

    Pushes the formal boundaries of what a rock-doc can be, though underneath the style choices I'm not sure there's any particularly illuminating insights about the VU. The film is so densely constructed that it's difficult to retain one nugget of information before Haynes moves onto something else, or maybe that's just because I popped a couple Mindy's artisanal THC gummies before I watched. At the end I felt both bombarded by information about the band and more lacking in understanding of them than ever. In any case I think coolness was the priority here and it was achieved.

    Points for being the rare movie where you can hear noise bleed from the neighboring apartment units. If I'd been watching this at home instead of in a cinema, I would have just assumed those sounds were coming from my own neighbors.

    Cool feature-length adaptation of Madonna's "Ray of Light" video [THIS HAS BEEN A JOKE ABOUT TIME-LAPSE PHOTOGRAPHY. THANKS FOR READING.]

    Like a 90-minute version of the "we all go a little mad sometimes" scene from Psycho, but you're not sure which one is Norman Bates and instead of murder there's only disappointment and confusion. Great film.
