★★★½ Watched 16 May, 2019
The best stuff I've seen from Mickey Rooney. Equal parts tension, haunted regret and unrequited tenderness.

The camerawork is somewhat surprisingly spry and fluid for Sturges, like Max Ophüls had just showed up in Hollywood and constituted some kind of threat.

Had to google to see if any Tokyo subway lines connected to northern Minnesota. :-(

I expected a sympathetic depiction of The Satanic Temple; I didn’t expect them to come off as actual heroes, but the movie makes that case pretty successfully.

This was fine.

Georges Méliès agrees to meet Michel Gondry in 1960s Czechoslovakia to make a semi-animated practical effects comedy about 18th-century Turkey and the moon. Loopy visual brilliance.

I thought I saw where this was going after the first act, but it went a completely wacky direction that at least gets credit for being wacky (and then the whole thing went back to normal+ and ended where I thought act two would start).

Santa Claus continues to have a bad time in the city of Philadelphia.
★★★ Watched 16 Mar, 2019
The rare movie saved from disaster by its closing credits sequence.
★★★½ Watched 10 Mar, 2019
Enigmatic and allegorical—Borges would have enjoyed this, I think.
★★½ Watched 09 Mar, 2019
This movie is 128 minutes long.
★★★ Watched 03 Mar, 2019
I think this movie is a metaphor.
