    One of those anime films that rips your heart out and roasts it over an open fire.

    Everything hurts. One of the best I've seen all year. Would make a great double feature with Grave of the Fireflies.

    There's a scene in this movie where Pinocchio sniffs a big pile of shit and smiles.

    ★★½

    One of the most frustrating movies I've seen all year.

    The cinematography is great. None of the acting sticks out as bad. The themes that it presents resonate hard and it ends on a really great note!

    I just was not engaged pretty much the entire time. I'm actually less upset at the movie and more at myself in a really confused way. I was constantly asking myself "why are you not in love with this?".

    Gonna come back to this later because I'm straight up confused and embarrassed by how I took this in.

  • Bones and All

    Bones and All

    ★★★★½

    Tender and horrifying at the same time. Right when I thought it was getting a touch too long, it stuck the landing and left me with way more to go home with than I bargained for.

    Gorgeously shot, acted and directed from front to back. There's so many characters in this that only show up for a few minutes, but they haunt the rest of the runtime, especially Michael Stuhlbarg who I can guarantee will make your skin crawl in…

    You people thought Gotti was a fucking meme?

    Give this a few months to be the laughing stock of the internet. I seriously couldn't believe what I was watching as I was seeing it.

    If it weren't for "The Haunting of Sharon Tate", this would be the worst film of the year, but it's simply too entertaining for me to put it lower than that offensive dumpster fire.

    This is gonna be John Travolta's "Wicker Man". A masterpiece of garbage.

    David Lynch is my favorite artist, I don't give a FUCK.

    This is exactly the kind of person I picture in my head when someone says the word "artist".

    Completely eccentric, always seeing the beauty in everything and never not interesting. I love this video.
