    "They say history is written by the victors..."

    The Trinity of Bitches united. The last corporation falls.

    The world is saved.

    Transcendental. Post-artifice, post-cinematic. Post-humanist. The artificial simulation (of prior) has materialized, paving the way for the viscerally assaultive, archetypal reality of hyper-stimulation (but more so: of ending the reign of capital); each frame representing a superimposition of radical fluidity, meticulousness, and opaqueness - its abstraction, once rendered at a normalcy of velocity on a formal level, now brutalizes…

    "It's just like a camera. Point and shoot."


    One woman. A globe of corporate decay. A soul stripped away.

    A state of victims. Bodies to weapons. Identities commodified.

    Then a gun. A memory, a feeling. An impulse to save.


    Retribution.


    The contents of the past. The fight of the now. The value of the fiction, of the understanding within ourselves. Of deconstructing the cinematic template to an expressively artificial actuality of an unparalleled understanding of compositions, spatiality, and geography…

    "Marx wasn't a German, he was a Jew."

    In spite of the devastating nature and ramifications of pre-'60s Welles almost incessantly enduring intricate forms of artistic interference, it's a testament to his ingenuity that even his tampered for-hire works outshine what most contemporaries will ever achieve. Morphed into a noir: the hauntings of fascism, within its foundational deception of charisma, proceed to linger through the shadows and its abundant reflections... infecting all that harbors good intentions.

    "Actions create consequences which produce new worlds."

    Act of counterbalance and "egocentric" fascinations: Scott's propulsive inanimacy - within static depths of motion - and vividly detailed, if bewildered illustrations of excess (ex: expressing above & below the text); in mise-en-scΓ¨ne, violence, and otherwise vs. McCarthy's abstracted digressions into the philosophical complications of his own fatalism (as a mechanism of the world at large, executed here through a simplistic narrative); observing so-called primal impulses, and all. Such unrelenting nihilism,…

    "You are a product of all who came before you."

    How the fuck do you make a film shot by Bill fucking Pope look like fucking shit.

    The phrase "flavor of the week," used to describe the (corporate) anti-artistry and unrelenting soullessness of entities like the MCU, continues to be represented by how all of these fake monstrosities persistently look like the polluted skies of the Industrial Revolution, feel like a black hole, sound like incomprehensible noise, perpetuate cultural…

    "That was so intense, I like can’t even with this place."

    Three stars for Jack Black as a woman and for Karen Gillan being hot.
