    Only negative criticism: No way in hell does the media have this much integrity in real life!

  • El Topo

    El Topo

    ★★★★

    I’m not gonna pretend like I got all the symbolism or what the hell it was trying to say in general but I found it so entertaining. More than anything, I was blown away with world the film captures, its so cool and unique. It almost feels like a life action anime or cartoon, done right.
    I was afraid the film would go off the rails and turn completely absurd mid way through (As in not making sense for the sake of not making sense) but it never crosses that line.

    ★★★½

    The fact that it’s heavily told from the perspective of the children, gives the film a deep tranquility. Really enjoyed it.

  • Days of Heaven

    Days of Heaven

    ★★★★½

    God, I wish I could have seen this on the big screen, instead of my laptop! (First world problem eh?)
    But either way it still looked amazing, and surreal! - - I didn’t find the film boring at all, but I sorta wished the focused could of been on the harsh labor the workers had to deal with. I love myself a good love story, especially a love triangle but I found the earlier scenes with the workers much more interesting.

    ★★★

    Saw this one hundreds of times as a kid, but holy smokes, I don’t remember it being so damn bloody violent.
    Not a perfect film, but so much fun to watch!

  • I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    The most Kaufmanesque, film that Charlie Kaufman has made by far. Before I give it a rating, (If that’s even possible) I think I might have to watch it one more time. There’s so much; Existential monologues, a whole ass film review of A Women Under the Influence, and surrealist imagery. But on a first time watch what I found most admirable, was the “Fuck it”, vibe Charlie Kaufman brought to this movie. He was bold and pretentious and absurd…

    This one here takes the cake, for a movie to avoid while amid a pandemic.

  • La Ciénaga

    La Ciénaga

    ★★★★

    ASMR cinema? — That’s one way to look at it.

    This film has so much mood and atmosphere, and yes that’s mainly due to the use of sound. The sound of the double barrel shotgun going off in the distance, the jingle of the ice cubes and the cluster shuffle of a family trying to co-exist in the mist of a hot, sticky, wet summer. 

    Unlike Luis Buñuel’s Tristana, the middle finger to the so called bourgeoisie is a little more…

    ★★★★★

    Such an intimate look into the lives of these bible salesmen. I honestly had to constantly keep reminding myself that this was a documentary and not a precisely blocked feature. The camera always seems to be capturing the perfect thing at the right time, be it the brutal sense of failure or the awful awkwardness.
