    The Legend of Hei

    ★★★★

    Very cool animated film that starts off small and adorable, then expands into an epic conflict on an Akira scale. I hope GKIDS or Netflix or someone else with reach picks this up for the American market, its fantasy worldbuilding is impressive and interesting. Gotta dive into the webtoons that spawned it now.

    ★★★

    A quarter of the way into this indie science-fiction movie, I thought I was seeing the new Moon. Halfway through, I thought I was seeing the new Ex Machina. Three-fourths of the way in, I thought I was seeing something wild and original. Then the end hit, and I was so frustrated at the loss of all that potential. The upside: this film is gorgeous, and really well directed and designed. The downside: that ending though. Full review for Polygon here.

    ★★★★½

    This movie is funny. This movie is political. This movie is intelligent and wicked and very, very calculated. This movie is sometimes visually stunning, and impeccably acted.

    But mostly, it's scary as hell.

    For the love of cinema, do not watch the spoilery-ass trailers. Do not read any reviews unless you trust the reviewers to be circumspect about giving away the plot. Go in as blind as possible and just let the story's surprises unfold. Assuming you're okay with scary…

    ★★½

    Sign me up as the apostate that just doesn't appreciate this one, that doesn't really understand why a long, rambling, sleepy movie about a disconnected, disaffected, insanely rich and privileged teenager moping around until he gets laid is so moving to people. There are better romances, better gay coming-of-age movies, better summer-fling stories, and movies where I don't get really really distracted by watching a dude gut a peach in his bed with his bare hands and then fuck it, making an immense mess for someone else to clean up. I will fight the world on this one.
