    Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

    ★★★★★

    Started on May the Fourth and finished on Revenge of the Fifth!

    I watched with my friend (over streaming) who also knows this movie in and out, and we chatted at length about the film and why we both adore it so much throughout the film. I will note that we were both silent for the entire Mustafar monologue. Just devestating.

  • Deliverance

    Deliverance

    ★★★★★

    Treats human beings as an absolute evil. Not only do we destroy nature, those of us who live in it corrupt it. The only one of the men who is able to communicate with the river dwellers in any way is the only to die, destroyed by the corrupted wilderness, along with his instrument of human connection.

    Carried by no less than 4 fantastic performances, Deliverance's men act in accordance to real, tangible masculinity. Their desperation is palpable. Harrowing and horrific.

    Coonskin

    ★★★★½

    While its not his most "Bakshi" (Fritz the Cat will never give up that title), Bakshi's Coonskin sees him at his most scathing, damming, and mean in a beautifully rendered fever dream that's entire runtime is one gigantic, grotesque, self-reflexive stereotype.

    Ang Lee: You got it.

    John Frankenheimer: Yes, sir.

    WKW: Can the car chase be in your soul?

    Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

    A couple of things to note before I leap into this review:
    - I haven't read anything by Mishima
    - I watched this on the beautifully transferred Criterion Blu-ray

    Now, this is most likely the most beautiful film I've ever seen, for a plethora of reasons. And I've seen 2001 on 70mm. So I'm going to break it down...
