    My second watch.
    I haven't seen this since it was in theaters (one of those enthralling and stress-inducing theater experiences that I think about a lot) so this was cool to revisit. Essentially Stalker dumbed down for the masses (and then it was still too confusing for the masses to enjoy, which is weird because this is actually pretty straight-forward). A bit generic for my taste but so much more interesting than most mainstream sci-fi. I don't think this…

    Captivating and quietly spiritual. There's so much about this that feels so unreal and special despite the prevalent naturalism. The last twenty minutes or so didn't leave me entirely satisfied but the ending was beautiful. The scenes with Boonsong or the catfish are completely enthralling.

    I know she's a (re)animated corpse and maybe this is just my loneliness talking but I don't think I'm alone in thinking Emily is really cute. This had some great spooky vibes too, and there were moments that got me kinda emotional. Burton's imagination astounds me even if it sometimes leads to less than great movies.
