    Should have been Hamill’s Robert Forster in Jackie Brown moment, it’s a shame.

    Without the 3D immersion, it becomes pretty clear that there’s no there there.

    One of the great films about class tbh.

    Outdoor exteriors in this one are just stunning.

    The Night Porter


    Every face in this movie is made up like a corpse for a funeral, which is only right.

    Pair with Polanski’s Death and the Maiden if you want a long night staring off into the distance thinking about mankind’s base nature.

    Friedkin cleared with The Hunted I’m afraid. Problem for me I think is Stallone- he can sell the doe eyed innocence and sweetness that’s part of the character but can’t really work as this animalistic force of nature he’s also supposed to be.

    Barbara Sukowa in this movie…I’m not saying I agree with your actions, Jean-Marc Barr, but I understand.

  • Pacifiction



    At some point in the next three months, likely while blind drunk, I’m gonna shout out “I’m feeling like the white De Roller!” to the great confusion of all around me.

    The Round-Up


    Love that after it gives you all the historical context in that prologue, you are immediately thrown into the world of the prison as this alien labyrinthine space. Really struck by this film’s approach to the collective protagonist/antagonist making all the violence feel so industrial and systemic. The faces of the captors seem to rotate out entirely every 15 minutes and it appears to make zero difference.

    The long takes and wide lenses create a sense of paranoia as you…

    Chris Tucker was simply never meant to be in a film longer than thirty seconds at a time.
