    Eine thought:
    -Holy shit this score! 
    -The guy playing Freder is acting his ass off. On the other hand, Joh Frederson & the Thin Man are masterfully playing subtle characters in a film style where subtlety could be easily seen as inactive.
    -Brigitte Helm steals the show however. Playing multiple parts including two different versions of Maria, nailing both subtlety & extravagance. Also having to be in that robot suit which was surely hell. I’m sending an academy award into the past…

    -I think every 8th-9th grader should watch this, it feels essential in the “growing up” canon.
    - love all the kids haphazardly running through traffic, something 8th grade me did a lot for some reason.
    -I wish John Denver lived to see this. If hanging with the Muppets are any indication, he would’ve been immensely charmed to see his song portrayed so lovingly. 
    -The “Country Roads” jam sesh was beautiful, movie magic.

    -Some of the best Christmas trees/lights I’ve ever seen shot on film.
    -Call me crazy but I just don’t buy Tom Cruise as a beer drinker. I mean that as a sort-of compliment.
    Also Jeffrey Epstein was murdered & they probably got Ol’ Kubey too. Great movie!
