Upgrade

Upgrade ★★★★

This is certainly a weird movie to end the year on...
But hey, we're going to see self-driving cars and considerable expansion of surveillance and drone camera come the next few decades, so I'm starting to see this movie as more of a cautionary foreshadow... even if the ending and all the wild twists still come off as on the nose.
I love the fuck out of this either way, and like John Wick on Dec 31st last year, I'm ending another year with a bit of the hyperviolence.

To everyone who helped make my year great and supported my filmmaking and what not, I want to thank you, and I hope I continue to improve upon my journey this next year.

Take Me Out is coming.

I posted this on Instagram and Twitter, and I'll make a list as well, but again, here are the films I saw for the first time that really made my year, in no particular order.
