my movie diary 😊
The discovery of a new dish brings more joy to humanity than the discovery of a new star.
It takes culture and a good memory to shape one's taste.
The food we made is good... but it's like a sketch, or an outline.
An immaculate movie in every way.
It reminds me that anything can be an art to those who understand it properly. And it makes me want to understand every possible form that art can take. I want…
I've felt these things. I think we all have.
For horror. For drama. For cinema and art as a whole. Persona is a boundary pushing landmark. I don't know if I'm more smitten by it's avant-garde style, or how it speaks so specifically to anxieties I've been experiencing in my life. But I love it all.
A challenging but rewarding watch.
"If you've somehow made it to the end of this and you're not an MMA fan, I hope you take one thing away from all this. This will happen to everything you love. Nothing you like will remain untouched, and it will get further and further monetized into meaninglessness. This isn't just our problem in our idiotic blood sport. You're fucked too."
- Felix Biederman
Whether or not you're a fan of MMA I strongly believe you should watch this…
Eli, you boy.
The story, acting, directing, and score are all absolutely phenomenal. Needless to say, Daniel Day-Lewis is so damn compelling and I could watch him act for hours. The entire last scene forced me to add half a star, and it speaks volumes that Paul Dano could hold his own acting with Day-Lewis.
