    A kaiju short shot entirely with puppets, and it works to perfection in my opinion, mostly because Daisuke Sato isn't trying to reinvent the genre, instead he is showcasing new and inventive ways to make a kaiju film. This is exactly what Kickstarter was made for, and now all I want is for Daisuke Sato to get even more money to do a feature length kaiju puppet film, with the effects and quality of something like Thunderbolt Fantasy. Let me dream.

    Me during any Guy Maddin movie.

    This one does compel me more than most though.

    Binged Kaurismaki's Finland trilogy in less than 48 hours, because I forgot they were leaving Criterion at the end of November. I'll make this my conglomerate review of the trilogy, becausewhile I loved them all, this one was my favorite. All three, however, are impeccably, and beautifully told stories of loneliness in Finland, and how love eventually triumphs over adversity. Highly recommend all three, but especially the first two.

    On a sidenote, this felt very similar to a Tsai Ming-liang film, only less zany (still a little weird though). So if you like his movies you should love Kaurismaki's as well.

    Still my favorite Kubrick movie and one of my favorite war films of all time. I love the way Kubrick portrays the entire spectrum of humanity and the dual natures that people have. It is impressive that at a time of ignorance about PTSD and what war does to a man, that Kubrick swoops in and makes a damning movie about toxic masculinity and the corruption of military and government.
