    You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet


    In which Alain Resnais discovers the green screen and gets so close to making his own Speed Racer. Feels a bit more like an experiment than a traditional film despite it having a rather clear plot by just following a play but I don’t think I’ve seen a film ever exploit this much its framing device implicitly. There’s something magical to witness as the actors presented as themselves suddenly burst into the characters they’ve once played as if possessed by art and memory itself.

    Would probably hit harder if I was more familiar with Resnais’ theatre adaptations and the collaboration with the actors he meta-gathered here.

    After cinema, cooking is probably my favourite thing in the world so needless to say I was in heaven during the entire runtime. Masterclass not only in showcasing the most beautiful dishes but in storytelling through imagery and atmosphere, 100% deserving of its Cannes directing award.

    The best slasher film of the year.

    boyfriend SOMEHOW the only person on earth not to know the twist that’s more famous than the actual film’s plot, was on the edge of my seat waiting for his reaction. 

    naturally with shyamalan 80% of that movie makes me wanna hide in a corner to cry.

    Part Eleven (the very last screening)

    Will be absolutely honest, the first twenty minutes or so had me believe I would hate this. It’s effective, sure, but watching people do their chores while you can faintly hear the sound of death machines made me feel like the filmmaker was pulling a really fucked up joke. I wanted to vomit, I even turned to my boyfriend and said I don’t know if I can handle this. The constant rumbling…

    Part Ten

    Where do I even begin with this one? What can I even say?

    It feels like this film has so much stuff going on, its scope feels huge and the presentation seems to make it maybe thirty times more complicated than it should be. It’s not particularly hard to follow as a film, there is clearly Kaufman’s influences all over this, but making sense of it is a whole other story. 

    Takes a while to get…

    Maybe the real destination were the OSHA violations we accumulated along the way.

    Part Nine

    Absolutely riveting from start to finish. The introduction of the family had me hooked early on, the re-enactment of Olfa’s wedding night had our sold out audience burst into applause as it seemed we fell in love with her. The way the film unfolds forces us to reconsider our feelings towards its subject is heartbreaking. Seeing the bigger picture of this family tragedy is at once beautiful and harrowing with its understanding of the intersection between abuse cycles and systematic misogyny. 

    Easily one of the most moving films of the year as well as a unique cinematic experiment.

    THEE best film of this series! 

    Especially impressed by MEW’s acting in this being soooo good, the way she handles survivor’s guilt elevates the film to impressive heights. The rest of the ensemble also fares pretty well, sure we’re dealing mostly stereotypes waiting to die next but you can feel the chemistry and the years these classmates have spent together or straight up avoiding each other.

    The directing is at its best in this, the colours are candy-like, the tone…
