  • King of New York

    King of New York

    ★★★★★

    the essence of gothic-punk; major, major vampire: the masquerade vibes, it might as well be an adaptation. social democracy achieved by the lumpenprole bonapartist, an invisible dictatorship; more than earns the descriptor of being shakespearean. lawrence fishburne is perhaps the greatest actor in human history, bar none.

  • The Getaway

    The Getaway

    the prototypical michael mann film, birthed by a collision between peckinpah's melancholic chaos and walter hill's two-fisted stoicism. jaded convicts, meticulous planning, heists fucked-up by trigger-happy cowboys, everyone's real slick until shit hits the fan, then it's just a matter of damage control. the screenplay opens up with a quote by, inevitably, hemingway, which tells you all that's necessary about the getaway's minimalist-masculine spirit. peckinpah and hill would create better, more complex movies, but this is an essential component in both their careers.

    (also something i've noticed on this watch: peckinpah just loves having his male characters be constantly cuckolded? good for him? i guess?)

    venom LITERALLY said gay rights!!!

    they gave every single worst line in the script to michelle williams and she carried that shit like a champ. robert richardson photographed the crap out of this as well when he definitely didn't need to. absolutely dumb as hell, i loved every second of it. reminds you that capeshit doesn't have to be totally irredeemable self-important garbage; there's hope for cinema yet! give me a hundred more screwball comedies with big stupid queer slime creatures!!!

    Nomadland

    every single year we arrive at the shallow end of the filmmaking pool known as awards season, and every single year there's a movie (or several) exactly like nomadland. a touristic faux-docudrama vehicle for the most banal form of misery porn, presenting itself with all the deliberately-adorned signifiers of 'authenticity' and 'deeply-felt emotion' that endear this insidious genre of film to a dishwater-dull critical audience desperate to see any portrait of society that vaguely acknowledges that weird and esoteric concept…
