    ★★★★

    “My love, being together will make life beautiful for another 30 years. I’m growing stronger and younger. I’d like to give you 10,000 cigarettes, a dozen fashionable dresses…”

    Day of Despair

    ★★★★★

    The death of the author. The death of representation, and a refusal of symbols through a long take of a carriage wheel. The keepsake photographs of the cast and film crew (the commune) and their relationship to the memory of the film's production provide the real closure in this most human and romantic of films that I have won, of my own, from my experience as the viewer.

    Pompeii

    ★★★½

    I saw Pompeii to have a laugh at vulgar auteurists. But, my God, I didn't laugh. I saw a great deal that was strange, even stupid. But I also saw CGI that was delicate, almost too sensitive. A city washed through by the ocean and ravaged by fireballs. Impossible details. The earth fissured into catacombs. I felt as though I touched and heard the panic of doomed lives struggling with their fate. No sound came from their breasts as they embraced alone when the fire engulfed them. My God, I didn't laugh.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Fuck this film and everyone involved in its making.
