    Macon County Line

    ★★½

    It’s the movie that makes you say Whaaaaat the fuuuu— for at least half of the running time.
    If you’re tired of predicting movie plot points and get too comfortable with a movie that operates within just one genre, you’ll like this. The rest of us will be asking/yelling
    “Where is this going”

    - a cool car makes adequate scene transitions while padding runtime
    - cocaine is a hell of a drug...oh wait that was Rick James

    Joker

    ★★★★

    Joker is a raw character study and social commentary on how we create the monsters that prey on us. Phoenix’s performance is fantastic and the cinematography is engrossing. I knocked it down a star because of  a somewhat standard story structure & predictable plot beats. 

    It’s amazing to see some critics brushing aside the exceptional acting and visuals like they’re expected or nothing that special. These are probably the same people who fawned over OUATIH for the same reasons. The difference…
