I never expected to like Buffalo 66 even remotely the first time I watched it, which is why it’s so funny to be on my fifth go, only two months after the initial viewing. If you're part of online film circles, the name Vincent Gallo comes with a pre-determined set of associations, and I'd always been pretty scared to go near any of his work - the Chloe Sevigny Brown Bunny deal aside, he's…
something you may know about me, if we've spent upwards of an hour around each-other at any point since 2017, is that i'm a big fan of blue dog pict. my discovery of them aged 16 cast a huge shadow over my later cultural leanings, and even my personal life - i was enraptured by their androgynous, esoteric style and avant-garde music, but most of all, i desperately wanted to look like the frontman. embarassing as it feels to admit…
watched this because i'd heard it was conceptually interesting, but the fact of the matter is that even though the internet pitfalls brought up are very real for some (every hyper-online teenager will know), this movie doesn't make the most of what it could be. there's a specific chill to knowing that you've done something wrong and that there's a deserved and swift punishment around the corner - to suggest a movie that actually captures it though, i say literally…
why were the evil muppets just darker versions of the main cast with non-american accents? this, alongside the stereotypical presentation of clueless asian tourists, seriously killed the joy the movie gave me - the amount of subtle racism that still pervades children’s media is so disheartening.
if you want to know how bad this movie is, at one point during kurt's livestream the words 'dasha and anna are super cool!' appear onscreen.
everything i find absolutely obnoxious about online culture has reached its boiling point here, but not in the way the film intended. spree strikes a chord somewhere between black mirror, warning about the dangers of social media fame, and a desperation to be praised for it's knowledge of the hyperonline, its language and its…
there is truly nothing that i hate more in a movie than the characters speaking in self aware tropes to evade criticism like it's some kind of caveat that makes the flaws go away!!! kevin, we know you can't write for shit (which is why you haven't made a great movie in 14 years) but telling the audience that you know that over and over again doesn't mean your films are any less painful to sit thru... every cameo feels…
