Shin Godzilla

Shin Godzilla ★★★★½

finally rewatched in the context of having lived in japan for multiple years. the best horror comedy every made (maybe) ! an utter assault on politics, governance, post war what do i do nowism. it's basically a remake of a certain eva episode but with the practicality of contemporary thinking and experienced disaster -- this is the only movie i'll turn to in the face of coronavirus, trump, biden, whatever. everything is a stupid phone call and meeting room away

sidebar, the photography here is so evocative and perfect. filming godzilla from your local station, the hilltop shrine, a family's apartment..... suddenly the terror sets in
