    Nine Days

    ★★★★★

    "Have you ever reckoned the Earth much?"

    Rewatched Edson Oda's Nine Days again for the first time in 18 months since Sundance 2020 and... you know this is an absolute *masterpiece*, right? It's everything magical about cinema and the spectacular existence of life and beyond. Pure bliss. Astonishing and awe-inspiring in every possible way, from the score to the set design to the performances to the story itself about life and what it means to be alive. This is an…

    A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

    ★★★★½

    Some people have been complaining that this film isn't actually about Mr. Rogers. That's right. It isn't. It's about YOU. Yes, you, the viewer. It's about the way you giggle and smirk whenever Fred Rogers talks about something as simple as being kind to one another. Perhaps you think, that's for kids, that's not for me, we have real issues, and there are bigger problems in this world than just being kind. Maybe there are. But solving many of those…

    "There's no way to study the roots, without pulling up the tree and killing it. We need a fresh start."

    Very cool film. Nice to see a futuristic Cambodia, nice to see Buddhist concepts worked into a sci-fi story. The performances are good, visuals are slick. But I still wanted a bit more out of this story.

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    First time rewatching this since the world premiere at Cannes nearly a year ago... Biggest "wow I don't remember that" were all the songs used throughout, completely forgot all of them. But I definitely do remember the score! So lovely, beautifully used in the right moments, too.

    "I want art to be messy and free." Yes, Joachim, yes!!

    I feel like this film is the epitome of that quote about how what you want your life to be is never…

    Luca reigns!! OMFG, you guys. OMFG. You have no idea how much this is going to fuck you all up forever.

    I really don't even know where to begin with Suspiria. The Kubrick comparisons I heard beforehand are accurate. There's so much to unpack, and analyze, and discuss. Take your time. We have the rest of this year, and the next few years, to talk about it at length. Just don't miss it. See this film.

    Rocketman

    ★★★★½

    Wooooooooooo Rocketman is the upbeat, sparkly, flamboyant rock musical we've all been waiting for! It's everything that Bohemian Rhapsody should've been, but wasn't. What a banger!! Makes me want to dance and sing ooooh yeahhh.

    This is a vibrantly creative, imaginative, emotional rock biopic that doesn't shy away from being as gay and loud and honest and danceable as it damn well should be. Jamie Bell's performance as Bernie Taupin is as excellent as Taron Egerton as Elton John, both…
