• Cosmopolis



    Cronenberg understands that there is something innately campy about DeLillo. Oddly enough I would feel even less comfortable recommending this to someone than I would Crash, because by description alone Crash let’s you know what you’re in for (at least to a certain extent). I have a hard time believing most people would enjoy this if going in cold, between the zany dialogue, limo prostate exams, messy digital. Pattinson giving a really internalized performance that I think a lot of…

    Bodies Bodies Bodies


    It’s so hard to walk the tightrope that is the self-aware zillenial comedy, and I can’t say it never teters but idk, this was just so much fun. I just know the writers love the cabin episode of Girls where Shosh tears into everyone. Lee Pace dancing to 212 and using a seasonal depression light mask should be in every movie. Idk if this is the same without Rachel Sennott. Pete Davidson has never been used more perfectly. The role he was born to play.

    I am not going to excuse the racism but as a lonely, existentially unfulfilled redhead who never had a stable father figure growing up and loves Jesus Mary and the Chain, well—

    In the Mood for Love


    He remembers those vanished years. As though looking through a dusty window pane, the past is something he could see, but not touch. And everything he sees is blurred and indistinct.

    Turned it off at 25 minutes and let the record show I didn’t even do that with the Addison Rae movie

  • Watcher



    Thinking of that critique of The Lottery that it “wounds you only once”, and I’d say that applies to most horror movies, this one included, but doesn’t mean that it can’t serve its purpose. Nothing new or novel (gaslighting, we get it!) but there’s something very slick that combined with a tight runtime made this a pretty enjoyable watch. Grizzly imagery that reminded me a lot of In The Cut. The language barrier as a means of isolation was heavy handed but ultimately effective. Probably won’t stick with me but interested to see what Okuno does next

    I should have a kid I think

  • Days of Being Wild

    Days of Being Wild


    Interestingly watched this trilogy in reverse order, but actually enjoyed the way it worked out. I felt connected to a lot of the characters in a way that I don’t know if I would have if I didn’t know them / know about them prior. Essentially joyless and imo more nihilistic than his other work, the characters are united in their internal aching. Not a fun watch per se but still quite lovely and poignant

    Kill Bill: Vol. 1


    Vol II has more of an emotional core and the development of the warrior mythology BUT. Vol I has Gogo and a scene where Lucy Liu decapitates a man for undermining her so I may prefer this one if ever so slightly

    The perfect movie to watch in the middle of an 8 hour flight

  • Wild at Heart

    Wild at Heart


    I’m not sure why but for some reason I expected this to be closer in feel / narrative style to Blue Velvet. For me it it sits almost perfectly at the intersection of the nightmarishness of Inland Empire and the campy ensemble (both in characters and the actual cast) of Twin Peaks. has to be the horniest David Lynch movie, and I do not mean sexy in the way that Mulholland Drive or even Lost Highway is sexy, I mean downright…
