    Buffalo '66

    “You look like a little boy in the bathtub.”

    In one of the absolute finest pictures of all time Vincent Gallo explores a world of blame and hurt; a promise written in stone, supposedly irreversible only to be changed by the dedication of a gentle touch. Vincent Gallo’s “Billy” looks at how a less than traditionally paternal upbringing can guise in tremendous results. It’s built not of a single detrimental blow, but of small deteriorated slights that chip away at…

    Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion

    [1000TH REVIEW]

    “I still have no idea how to find happiness...but I’ll just stay here”. 

    This film is extremely important to me, as is the entire series. Neon Genesis and Twin Peaks are two pieces of fiction that have irreversibly changed the way I think; both in cinematic terms and otherwise. This film has so much to unpack, and while there are small details that reveal the bigger mosaic, yet I think the *feeling* of End of Evangelion and the…

  • The Babysitter

    The Babysitter

    Things get messy when you make a deal with the devil.

    Pulpy and fun! The Babysitter is certainly a more dark and true way to homage the horror of decades past in the wake of the Stranger Things hype. While I admire watching a clear passion project based on the types of films I grew up consuming an unhealthy quantity of. Unfortunately most of my admiration ends with intention and not execution. The constant resurgence of little text cards and…

    Husbands and Wives

    The Absence of Privacy

    I’ve recently become infatuated with Woody Allen’s newest memoir Apropos of Nothing — its superb, pick it up and give it a read, Woody fan or otherwise — and in turn the personal life of this artist, and quite frankly I cannot imagine a more tense and uncomfortable set than that of Husbands and Wives. The — extremely public — meltdown of Allen and Farrow’s relationship came within production of this which echoes as this relationship…

    WHAT DID JACK DO?

    Short Review:

    Here’s everything I’ve found about What Did Jack Do? I’m fairly sure it’s not available online — legal or otherwise — and as far as I’ve seen there aren’t any indications of it being included on a home release; though it’s a possibility. 

    I found it was screen at this film festival in 2017 and the link I added takes you to a FaceBook post with much more context and background. Though I’m assuming it’s a masterpiece, I doubt…

  • High Life

    High Life

    “My body obeys me.”

    Essentially capturing everything that makes science-fiction; universal and human themes with a technologically advanced setting. Claire Denis’s hypnotizing effect completely entranced me with her patient storytelling, a singular moment in the desolate nothingness has never felt more human.

    A spellbinder to be sure, a film leaving you with more questions than answers, it’s sexual duality is impeccable never really cementing a narrative, leaving the viewer to take everything in as they will.

    A detached experience that…
