    Ten Skies


    Watch the restoration HERE. Lossless blu-ray download available soon.

    If you've followed me on this site for any length of time, you'll likely know my obsession with American filmmaker James Benning. Just yesterday I referred to him as the greatest American Filmmaker to ever live, and hinted at a Benning Project™️ I was working on. I expected it to take a lot longer than it did, but it turns out that my gaming PC is even more adept at rendering…

    The Color of Pomegranates


    It feels really truly deeply silly to do this here, of all places, but I don’t have social media, Letterboxd is the only “platform” I have and I feel compelled to do *something* as Azerbaijan’s genocidal conquest of Armenia continues into a full blown boots on the ground invasion of Armenian territory, and the most famous woman in the world (and most famous Armenian of all time) is too busy dropping her new fleece SKYNS collection to say anything about what…

    Props to her for not only reading the synopses of some Peter Greenaway films, but even watching some of the trailers as well 🥰

    Godzilla Minus One


    I already published my list like a dumbass, but this is definitely in the top 5 films of the year. I had high expectations and this still blew them away. I’m a little awed by how truly fucking good this is— the truly excellent creature design, the scrappy + loveable cast, sappy pathos, the way it balances self-serious terror with Godzilla fanservice (Let out an embarrassing and involuntary “Fuck Yes!” when they finally brought in the secondary Godzilla theme during…

    Genuine star-making performances for Lou and Cruz, great showings from Gerber and Lynch, a couple funny gags, but c’mon man. Four, five stars??? Is this the first movie you’ve ever seen?

    Bottoms does for 2000s comedies what Ti West does for 70s exploitation: points hollowly to aesthetic genre signifiers and hopes it gets the vibe close enough that we won’t notice the dead battery and lack of horsepower under the hood. I hate to be like a Mormon-movie buff type…

    The Fire Within: Requiem for Katia and Maurice Krafft


    "...we discover images not only of volcanoes, but of landscapes that no one has ever shot like [the Kraffts]. Some of it has the quality of dreams."

    Last night I saw Sara Dosa's Fire Of Love, an ultra-slick documentary about Volcanologists Katia and Maurice Krafft. Although the film itself felt a bit too calculated, the visuals left me awestruck. The images, moving and still, captured by the Kraffts across a lifetime dedicated to Volcanoes, are the most stirring, otherworldly and…
