    Manchester by the Sea

    ★★★★

    The woman sitting next to me wept inconsolably for the last hour of Manchester by the Sea, and when it finished said: "So bleak!". I didn't weep and actually thought it was tentatively optimistic. Ice melts. Life persists. Life goes on. Life finds a way.

    Joe

    ★★★★★

    "Got a lot of scars."
    "Yeah. But all the others...all the others are dead."

    There are people in this world who think that Nic Cage is a joke or a meme. Those people should watch Joe and shut the fuck up.

    Last Year at Marienbad

    An ambiguous story that I may or may not have enjoyed.

    Only kidding: I unambiguously found it impenetrable and increasingly irritating, in no small part because of the intermittent screeching of the organ on the soundtrack.

  • Jodorowsky's Dune

    Jodorowsky's Dune

    ★★★★

    Jodo recruits a crew of spiritual warriors (including Moebius, Giger and Chris Foss) to dream a film that will reverberate through the future of science-fiction cinema for almost forty years and counting. And it never even got made. Heartening, beautiful, funny and even occasionally awe-inspiring.
