    A very acceptable piece of media. 

    I could say something about Baudrillard’s theory of Games in relationship to the murder of The Real blah blah blah. Meh. This was fine. Maybe that means it actually sucks, maybe it’s just another fast casual streaming thing. Not mind blowing, not terrible. This is the middle table mediocrity of Netflix that is everywhere and nowhere.

    Side note: was expecting weirder games.

    Romero’s most personal statement on the independent spirit. It’s beautiful, it’s geeky, and it’s one of the films discussed on the latest episode of The Gauntlet Podcast

    Someone should tell Nolan to take it easy. This shit is exhausting.

    It is somehow simultaneously better and worse than people think. It seems like everyone is projecting what they want onto this film. Without wading into that, and I do have my own reading, this is a character piece embodied by an absolutely engrossing central performance. Without it, the entire film would probably collapse. I did find it much funnier than almost everyone else in the nearly sold out screening I attended.
