    Wings of Desire


    Man becomes a human and immediately buys the worst jacket and hat combo possible.

    Wild. Beautifully photographed. The black and white somehow gives an almost surreal quality. The camera just floats around like the viewer is an angel too and there’s constant thoughts from anyone near by like a 2 hour random German people’s poetic thoughts audiobook. Cool. The poetry as dialogue approach is artful and nice but doesn’t make me very emotionally invested. I appreciate this for what it is but I find Paris, Texas to be more personally affecting.

    According to this Peter Falk used to be an Angel. I hate Nick Cave.

    Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse


    Not a lot to say here really. It’s visually and sonically incredible and manages to tell a distinct multiverse story that feels grounded in emotional reality while still being nothing short of an animation masterclass showreel.

    It reminds me of being a kid and drawing constantly riffing on things I’d seen and making new things out of them. Every new Spiderman variant is cool to see. This just oozes creativity and dedication to a craft or many crafts. Cowboy Spiderman on a Spiderman masked horse was my favorite.

    Wildly mediocre in every way possible. Episodes are 20 minutes, plot advanced 1 centimeter every week, nothing happens, acting is passable at best, episodes end right as something starts to happen, there’s no stakes I don’t care about any of these people, and I’m amazed they had a cool idea and then shit all over it in 20 minute increments.

    This would be a compelling thriller to someone who has never seen a movie before.

    Also after just watching Severance this feels like a student production.

    Sundance film premiere #3

    It blew my mind how stupid this was. Incredibly poor direction with some of the worst dialogue, writing and acting I’ve seen in a long time. Carlson literally can not act. The overuse of typical horror movie loud sound cues was literally disgraceful. Basically if the American horror story geniuses made a remake of Alice in wonderland with hints of Argento, Refn, and Del Toro all blended up and then flushed it down the toilet.
