• The English Patient

    The English Patient

    ★★★★

    I miss when movies like this were nominated for Best Picture. Years ago this played in a bus in Mexico when I was like 6 or 7 and all I remember was Ralph Fiennes’ burnt body and Willem Dafoe getting his thumb cut off.

  • The Velvet Underground

    The Velvet Underground

    ★★★★½

    We’re trained to appreciate documentaries solely for the information they give us about the subject but Todd Haynes knows that it’s more interesting to give off the feeling and vibe The Velvet Underground pioneered. As that, “The Velvet Underground” is a successful time capsule into one of the greatest bands of all time lead by some of the greatest musicians of all time. I would love if Todd made a biopic or another documentary centered more on Lou Reed.

    Stop it. I don’t want to see another god damn incomplete movie that is just build up to the next movie.

  • Titane

    ★★★★½

    No one makes me shiver and cringe like Julia Ducournau and this is only her second film.

  • No Time to Die

    No Time to Die

    ★★★½

    Got to see this with one of my longtime internet friends, Caterina, in Germany, so that was definitely a highlight of this trip. I think some things could have been tighter but overall this is probably the best ending for a Bond’s career.

  • Cry Macho

    Cry Macho

    ★★★★

    I don’t think I’ll sadly get a chance to see this in theaters but I really liked “Cry Macho” a lot. It’s a lot more gentle than Eastwood’s previous films and continues his examination of his image and what has become of his own psyche of what he was portraying in previous films. I wonder if Eastwood will stay on this path of softer films with whatever time he has left. I still think the old man’s got it.

    Hard to judge an incomplete film.

  • The Many Saints of Newark

    The Many Saints of Newark

    ★★★½

    This should have been a miniseries but it still has some great stuff.

  • Dirty Work

    Dirty Work

    ★★★½

    It’s been almost a week since Norm passed away and it’s been a real loss to the comedy world. Rewatching clips from his Late Night appearances to his legendary Live show, Norm really proved he was one of the greatest comedians of all time. It’s no wonder the only film he wrote would be one of the weirdest films of all time. An Anti Comedy from Norm’s “acting” to the basic structure of the story and jokes, “Dirty Work” defies…

    Well, I thought it was neat.

    ★★★

    [35mm]
    There’s a lot of stuff in here that’s very well done but I’ve given this two chances and I just don’t really find much of the film to be intriguing. The best part was seeing the “Licorice Pizza” trailer and WOW, you guys aren’t ready! It looks incredible!
