    The Pink Cloud

    ★★½

    Sundance Movie #1

    A reasonably well-acted and at times cathartic watch that touches on a lot of interesting topics like corporations exploiting worldwide disasters, wanting to escape reality, raising a child in quarantine, etc. Yet at the same time, it doesn't really go anywhere with these topics and just kinda aimlessly moves onto the next scene, made even more frustrating by the overlong runtime and lack of compelling characters... with scene exceptions here and there. All this I can tolerate…

    Twin Peaks: The Return

    ★★★★★

    It's a testament to how something so aggressively downbeat and difficult can make for such an engrossing and masterful piece of media. Movie or television show.

There are elements that indicate this (off-putting effects, slow and meditative scenes, mental instability of preexisting characters), but under Lynch's hand these far-out elements, plot threads, and heavy tonal shifts turn the show into something gripping, thoughtful, and passionate.…

    I just watched this on artpog's rabbit room. Lots of talking and memey shit flown around, so I only knew half of what was going on. But it's pretty terrible. Acting, cinematography, music, dialogue, pacing, stock footage, etc. Don't bother.
