    Infinity Pool

    RIPPER. Extremely funny as hell. One of cinema’s great Fake Countries.
    EDIT: TIM HECKER! MIA GOTH EATING FRIED CHICKEN ON THE HOOD OF MOVING CAR!

    Obsessed with this movie. Super rewarding rewatch.

  • Speed

    Speed

    Remember when the cops exploded a city block in a low income neighborhood in south LA with a truck full of fireworks? Chemically impossible to not think about that the entire running time.
    Salute to Jan de Bont as always.

    Jim Henson and Frank Oz doing Bert and Ernie in an upside down biplane mid-flight is my generation’s Goose and Maverick.

    ★★★★★

    One of the most beautiful and delicately heart-wrenching films I’ve ever seen.

  • The Menu

    The Menu

    The first movie to capture with emotional precision what it feels like to be at a restaurant.

  • Putney Swope

    Putney Swope

    A completely insane comedy counterculture miracle, with plenty of yikes-y stuff that super crosses the line but honestly not as much as I had anticipated, all context considered. Going into this I was expecting something shaggy and tossed off, and while it definitely feels wild and runs on a kind fuck-it drug-logic, the staging/framing/direction is so dialed in and cinematic that it enhances everything. Can't tell you how many times the way characters were arranged in a shot had me…

    Decision to Leave

    extremely fucking good

  • White Noise

    White Noise

    Big and weird as hell and funny and the middle sequence feels like Terry Gilliam’s War of the Worlds. Cool! Zoned out a bit on that final chapter but last 10 minutes rips obviously.

    This Place Rules

    Some weird and sad stuff in here but not sure I understand what this dude is bringing to the table in terms of pov or insight.
