    The most loose and outré of all Cassavetes, which is saying something, also turns out to be his most quintessential. Like driving past a train wreck, except that train wreck is screaming, belligerently and it takes over 2 hours to drive past. Men are just little boys afraid to die, afraid to be alone, that just want their mothers. Mostly drunken destruction and embarrassment, but also empathic with a pure embrace of the ugly that is really hard to find.…

    Man lost and found within the tumultuous waves of life. One part Ford, maybe even one part Hemingway, but 100% Milius at his best. The purest of American films. Finds a sweet spot between New Hollywood and the classicism of its heroes. Not about American exceptionalism but about the exceptionalism of the American individual, while still remaining about how these distinct individuals interact within their highly specific community. Youth interrupted by life and life interrupted by death. Man versus nature,…

    These Krulik docs would be absolutely amazing if Krulik wasn’t such a condescending asshat.

    European decay. The death of a particular type of Euro bourgeoisie that eat everyone, including themselves. Great gore and tension, but D’Amato’s direction is robust. His use of space, colors (green and red in particular), gliding camerawork (usually to unveil something terrifying), closeups, shadows, lingering on the edges of the frames, hiding what’s lurking just off of them, was extremely impressive. Granted, I am a D’Amato novice. Giombini’s score is what drives everything. It is unrelenting, bizarre, discordant synths layered on top of one another mixed with what sounds like church organs and at times death knells ringing.

    I've never felt like crying for nearly five hours straight, but I have now. Not crying because I was sad, or crying because I was happy, just a swell of emotions all at once constantly ebbing and flowing, arising for no particular reason, just because. Images, sound, light, darkness, a Bolex and a life lived, a life loved, a life remembered and spliced together at the end of the century.
