    Southland Tales

    ★★★★

    Movie of our time. Kelly prophesied so much about NOW: increased overlap of celebrity and politician, left and right extremism harder to distinguish, Musk, Kardashian, police brutality as a political tool for white agendas,  identity artifice, America’s masturbatory grip on 9/11, the messy, divided soul of America.

    Unparalleled ambition, genre-bending, values ideas over an easy to follow plot. Funny and surprisingly heartfelt. A melding of Dr. Strangelove, The Manchurian Candidate, Pulp Fiction, Phillip K. Dick, T.S. Eliot, Robert Frost, Pop Art, The Bible, and 24 hour news.

    Left a major impact on my writing. Hope Kelly gets to make his sequel.

    This is a social horror movie. It’s funny, honest, human, tragic, and ultimately such a horrific look at systemic oppression and class divisions and the lengths made to either overcome them or keep them in check. It crosses linguistic and geographic borders, and lands with a punch in the gut.

    ★★★★½

    Yeah, I loved this. Epic, genuinely emotional, meditative, character driven, uniquely tragic. Deviants subplot needed a bit more. But Zhao joins Snyder and Donner as one of the few filmmakers to fully embrace the idea of superheroes as myths. One of the MCU’s best. It also firmly fits within Zhao’s established canon and her expressed themes thus far. It’s an ambitious love letter to the genre. Eternals both honors and deconstructs it’s source material. Hope Zhao knows she delivered something special that will be reevaluated in time.
