    Down by Law

    ★★★

    Subtly funny and quirky. It's a bit of a long process but I enjoyed living in this world for awhile. The "I scream, you scream" scene was probably my favorite. It's not one I'll eagerly watch again, but I can talk about it for hours. Jarmusch creates atmosphere and mood in such a distinct and powerful way that it's impossible not to take a lot away from it.

    Hereditary

    ★★★½

    This movie scared the hell out of me. The cinematography, the sound design, the acting. There's a lot worth talking about. I'll leave it with this: it's on par with A Quiet Place as being one of the few new horror films that actually worked for me. Perhaps it's today's Rosemary's Baby.

    Encounters at the End of the World

    ★★★

    Interesting to hear Herzog's narration and little anecdotes about everything we experience. Also learned a good bit. Other than that, it seems for the most part to be any other thing you could catch on nat geo or something. Maybe at the time it was more groundbreaking.

  • Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

    Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

    ★★★

    Beautiful style. Excellent score. The set designs and mis en scene are something to talk about, and the many themes and messages on art and life and their combination radiate throughout.
