    I Care a Lot

    ★★★

    First half sets up one of the most hateful villains in cinema history (Pike) and a delightfully sleazy pair of anti-heros (Dinklage and Messina as mob boss and mob lawyer); second half promptly throws away that delicious dynamic and asks us to sympathize with Pike by introducing life-or-death stakes, devolving into silly airport novel shenanigans. What a shame.

    50/100

    The Batman

    ★★★

    If we had to have another Batmovie (we didn't), it should be exactly this: Batman as a brooding detective in a noir-ish setting (very little Bruce Wayne; let's keep him in costume!), Jim Gordon as his sidekick, the duo investigating cryptic clues, political corruption, and up against a serial killer-type, a freakishly intelligent incel psychopath. Essentially, Batman as Se7en. They nailed it.

    É incrível que tem gente…

    Hey, good people who follow me on Letterboxd!

    My first short film, Chronophobia, is currently playing at a fairly big "fantastic" festival here in Brazil (called Fantaspoa) and getting some attention. Seems like as good a time as any to ask you to watch it.

    Watch it here. I was gonna link to the festival stream, but I just realized it's not subtitled, so this Vimeo will do.

    Getting lots of positive reviews here, which is heartening. Feel free use…
