    Scream

    ★★★★½

    Matthew Lillard in this is playing the gayest character in movie history. people throw around the phrase “serving cunt” a lot but whoo boy he’s dishing that shit on a silver fucking platter, i was hooting and hollering at the scene where he and Ulrich look like they’re in love

    ★★★★

    i, too, am an insufferable hyper-romantic narcissistic film obsessive who runs into walls trying to write anything interesting. convinced now that the ideal date would be at the Bergman Safari and/or skinny dipping in Sweden. i think i’m in love with Vicky Krieps

    Kicking and Screaming

    ★★½

    occasionally funny and you can definitely see the roots here of what would end up being his great films but i’m honestly not sure i’ve ever seen a movie with bigger Debut energy than this one. as far as Whit Stillman/Woody Allen imitations it could be worse but like nobody in this movie goes through any development lol

    “I used to make long speeches to you after you left. I used to talk to you all the time, even though I was alone. I walked around for months talking to you. Now I don't know what to say. It was easier when I just imagined you. I even imagined you talking back to me. We'd have long conversations, the two of us. It was almost like you were there. I could hear you, I could see you, smell…

    Shit, sometimes I cry so much sometimes I turn into drops.

    And just roll out into the water, right? Roll out into the water just like all the motherfuckers out here trying to drown their sorrows.

    as radically, profoundly queer as the day it came out. just floors me every time, Barry Jenkins is one of a handful of directors alive genuinely interested in faces and their tiny details/the reactions they make, his close ups are among the greatest close ups ever committed to the medium. in an ideal world people would be lining up to fund whatever he wants

    do you guys think mark kept the inflatable cock. like he has a trophy case for it or something. framed it like an oscar. looks at it every now and again knowing it’s the peak of his career. i’d like to think so

    ★★★★½

    “They watch, but they don’t understand.”

    was gonna write a long pretentious paragraph about digital information/art and how distorted it gets in the face of capital and shared interests but my brain since watching this has been exclusively the shot of a nude Chloe Sevigny playing Oni on the PS2. one of the great cinematic images

  • Phantom Thread

    Phantom Thread

    ★★★★★

    “Sometimes I jump ahead in our life together, and I see a time near the end. I can predict the future, and everything is settled. And all our lovers and children and friends come back and are welcome. And we have large gatherings where everyone is laughing and playing games. I am older and I see things differently, and I finally understand you. I take care of your dresses, keeping them from dust and ghosts and time.“

    ”Yes, but right now we’re here.”

    ”Yes, of course we are.”

    “And I’m getting hungry.”

    a man in love with a woman in love with a man who you can’t fall in love with. perfect new year’s event, my theater was packed with old people laughing at every joke and i wish i could experience every Wilder that way
