    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    Like listening to a death rattle for 142 minutes. Not just for Star Wars, but for the modern media ecology. I set my bar as far down as it could possibly be, and I was still completely and utterly shocked by what I was forced to endure.

    Watching this movie is the equivalent of finally looking down at the track marks left by a lifetime spent in the heroin den of nostalgia.

    Mikey and Nicky

    ★★★★★

    Seen and loved multiple times. Rewatched it at the Cinematheque in Vancouver.

    Elaine May's women are immaculate. The scene where Nicky returns home to his wife is the de facto greatest scene about mob marriages maybe ever. It illustrates more complexity in those few minutes than the entirety of Goodfellas marital centerpiece.
