    House of Gucci

    There's a scene in this movie where Lady Gaga bends down to try on some heels at the Gucci store or some shit and her ass is sticking out and Al Pacino's character walks into the same Gucci store, and I swear my man was about to yell out to Adam Driver, "SHE GOT A GREAT ASS". Unfortunately, that did not happen.

    Not gonna lie, this was such a missed opportunity. Maybe I went in with the wrong mindset because…

    I am so bummed to say this, but this was disappointing, to say the least. Far too long and way too many people in the film.

    Chloe Zhao directs this movie with her left ass-cheek. I don't even love Nomadland but there is so much passion in that, and it's so abundantly clear in this film that there is so little creative freedom these directors can have when doing something for the MCU. Even Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnorak had some…

    Seemingly simple but deceptively layered and heartfelt. This looked like something I would love just from the premise and poster alone and I was so goddamn charmed from start to finish. It's not flashy or bombastic, but the movie really excels in its quiet moments.

    Ultimately, it's a film about pursuing love and giving it a chance rather than forfeiting when things get serious. When I read the synopsis, I thought this film would *only* be about Oliver's father and…

    RED ROCKET HYPE

    Sean Baker dispels the notion that people in poverty must be "good" and "unselfish" people. We see a lot of stories about impoverished people that are just kind beyond words while rich people are insensitive and cruel. The truth of the matter is that a lot of poor people also just don't have the capacity to care about others when they can barely get by and care for themselves. This feels raw and unsanitized, and doesn't glamorize…

    Starts off with an incredible one-take musical sequence but loses steam really quickly. Adam Driver's extremely long stand-up comedy sequences just don't really work for me. The message, for how convoluted the film is, is extremely simple and not subtle. The quality of each musical numbers vary greatly from really wonderful opera tracks to dumbass unnatural dialogue singinf. Bit of a hit-or-miss situation.

    Still, in some strange way, I was invested and wanted to see how things played out. Holy Motors is still better though.

    The 16mm looks so goddamn gorgeous. Opens with one of the most stunning shots I've seen this year, with the grainy cinematography and the faded red leaves that looked like it was shot on Kodak Aerochrome.

    Maybe I've just been feeling especially emotionally vulnerable recently. Perhaps I'm overrating this. But I fucking cried my eyes out in the second half.

    Justin Chon's directing is better than his writing (although I still love the characters he has created here), but his…
