    Annihilation

    ★★★★

    Pretty sure this is some Lacanian allegory that I’m too dumb to understand, but it is also extremely depressive and psychedelic and Jennifer Jason Leigh is in it, which are like the only three criteria by which I judge any film, so it rules.

  • Avengers: Infinity War

    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★

    Yo, I guess on Titan they didn’t get the memo that Malthus was wrong.

    ★★★★★

    Just got out of the 60th Anniversary screening at Point Ruston in Tacoma. Those greens really pop on the big screen! The lushness of Bernard Herrmann’s score comes to the fore as well. I feel like I should probably say something funny or insightful, but I’m just vibin’ rn.

    Columbus

    ★★★★

    There are two scenes in Kogonada’s visually rich and quietly stirring debut feature, Columbus, that I identify with more than any scene from any other film in 2017 (with the possible exception of Rooney Mara eating an entire pie in A Ghost Story). The first scene is one in which it is revealed that John Cho’s character once confessed his undying love to Parker Posey’s character when he was 17 years old. Same here.

    The second scene requires a bit of backstory.
