to me this is both a riff on THIEF and Fincher's follow-up to DRAGON TATTOO: a bleak and ice-cold dive into the depths of capital's evil. he's teasing apart the flimsy digital surveillance infrastructure that has infiltrated it's way into more and more aspects of our lives, making it impossible for anyone to hide, whether a hitman or a billionaire. this is also part and parcel with both the casualisation of work and the 24/7 connection we are all forced…

i watched this in a theatre with 1 other old guy and it was EXACTLY what i was hoping for. Beautifully grimy 70s NYC, moody lighting, sweaty shitbag cops, Al Pacino in the greatest fits known to mankind going THE WHOLE DAMN SYSTEMS CORRUPT over and over... masterpiece

I think this…

i interviewed new Letterboxd member Martin Scorsese about the films that informed Killers of the Flower Moon, and what’s more, i managed to not pass away while doing it. full 11-minute video here, deep-dive article here, and his official list of 59 companion pictures to his entire filmography (which he overcame his fear of e-mails to send to us) is here. i cannot believe i got to type all of that, and that i got to press post, and that the links…

I will NOT leave my donkey outside when I’m sad
