    Late Spring

    ★★★★★

    Been waiting for Ozu to make me cry, so it’s only right that when he did it was a fairly seismic wave. Setsuko Hara’s face is one i’ve grown to associate with a glowing, warm smile in Ozu’s films, likely the most charming i’ve seen, a legendary signature. She’s a balm, a relief, her smile an anti-depressant - to see her breakdown here, that shit isn’t easy. When she does smile in Late Spring it isn’t the accustomed bringer of…

    Who’s Zed? 
    Zed’s dead, baby. Zed’s dead.

    Tarantino has certified psychotic galaxy brain film takes but man I love to listen to his movies speak

    ★★

    Taika Waititi laughing at his own jokes for 2 hours. Marvel using queer characters as decorative design posing as representation. Bale good (obviously), emotional core just about intact, weightless surroundings abundant, movie pretty insufferable
