    We're All Going to the World's Fair

    ★★★★

    Powerful, formally ambitious, weird and creepy, A vision of the internet that's very spot on yet alien, with strong vibes and interesting narrative decisions. "We're all going to the world's fair" is a very interesting look at isolation, para-social relationships, identity, performance and the internet.

    This is way more effective than I ever thought it would be

  • Decision to Leave

    Decision to Leave

    "I crumbled"

    A masterfully directed riff on Hitchcock, where Park's style plays with time and space to create a stylish romance/ Psychological thriller that has JUST enough twists, absurdity, cool camera moves and messed up characters to be considered a Park Chan Wook movie.
    A tale of rooftops and mountains, pinoculars and smartphones, language differences and doubts, sleeplessness and longing

  • Fragile as the World

    Fragile as the World

    This and "Tropical Malady" are basically Hozier song.
    A poem of love and death in the woods, something that disregards rules of storytelling, or doesn't have much "Storytelling" to play with spaces, colors (and lack there of), and bodies, to turn a simple love story into something much larger and almost mythical. Families talk in dim lights, hearts open, bodies touch and wind moves the trees. The young girl is in a constant state of dissociation, a fragile person looking at the world from outside. It has moments of divine cinematic magic and moments were her passive weakness were too much for me

    Despite the bad CGI blood, this is one the greatest climaxes of all time

  • Hotel

    Hotel

    A minimalist psychological "horror", takes place almoat completely in this isolated hotel and the woods around it. And build on gradual assembly of minor inconveniences (Loud music from neighbors - a lost necklace - hard work) and observing everyday activities, showering, swimming, ect to build a sense of unease or discomfort, a sense of "I'm not supposed to be working here" without using much "overt" horror elements, it has an almost Aki Kaursmaki feel or Chantel Akreman sense of details. It's an hour long and on YouTube so it's worth your time.

    Threads

    ★★★★½

    Impressively powerful, an imaginary nuclear wat portrayed in a very grounded approach, but how it builts up, it's "snapshots" of life structure, it's down to earth camera and it's almost documentary feel make it an effective watch as close to say "Come and see".
    It's a film that can be both intimate and distant, with a lot of interesting choices

    Kill Bill: Vol. 2

    I prefer part 1, and not because "YEAH, MORE ACTION" but it feels like it does what it does better, you know? This is still pretty good too

  • Marquis

    Marquis

    The mere fact that this just exists makes me love it. I knew this is inspired by the Marquis de Sade and portrays him as a prisoner who talks to his sentient penis, But that is the tip (get it?) of the iceberg, that something so seemingly juvenile took that much effort and works as well as it does is great, I was emotionally attached to a penis! (That isn't mine)
