    Fucking rights, Jim Kelly, for beating two cops up and stealing their cruiser to get to the airport.

    This is a quasi-entry as, really, for depression-related reasons, I guess, I spent a good chunk of my Tuesday watching clips/video essays on and listening to the soundtrack of ‘Stalker’. I didn’t watch the film in full. I’d like to! In fact I want to do it for the ramshackle-ass Movie Club I’ve had going off + on w/ my brother and cousins; knowing they’ll have trouble w/ a poetic, glacial paced Russian meditation on life and it’s myriad of disappointments. Purposeful trolling.

    Masterpiece. Paul Schrader has captured post-Trump malaise better than any film I’ve seen since the election, whether intentional or not. In the climate we find ourselves in the observant are often burdened by a toxic amount of uncertainty and anger. With this in mind Schrader asks, How is it we try and justify the notion of hope when you can’t ignore the chaos in front and ahead of us? Heavy but necessary.

    So, yeah, the lead of the movie is all for Hong Kong cops busting heads for the status quo. I mean, there’s always the possibility this lady’s been coerced by Pooh Bear’s Chinese gov’t - “Just China Things”. Until that’s proven to be the case - it won’t - you might as well not see 'Mulan'. I kind of planned on giving this a shot up until now, tbh. Blow.
