    A train thunders down an uneven terrain — surrounded but unbound by its worldly obstacles and bypassers, though certainly still acknowledging them, indulging in, embracing, and changing them. It’s the peace from when the train leaves and the darkness settles before opening onto another train that drives home the reminiscence; the sounds of the thousand previous rattling carriages carrying on in your mind. It’s hard to put into words how empty that feels. You’d hardly had enough time to get…

    Standing at the head of a country, role model to all who’ve felt and to all who’ve cried, it’s easy to cry too.

    “We can mutate the whole world into metal.
    Ahh... I feel great.”

    In the wake of Japan’s post-WWII economic booms, Tetsuo: The Iron Man interprets the civilian industrial paranoia of the time as batshit as it ever could’ve been interpreted.

    Luis Buñuel's technical wizardry isn't so much "taking the back seat" to his witty writing as it is already everything the seats and car are made out of. Instead of weaving in and out of the two — changing priorities all the time — Buñuel runs his commentary and his control over mise-en-scene parallel to one another, supporting and complementing both in the process, driving one another forwards. It’s kind of amazing how he does that, too, because The Discreet…
