    ★★★★★

    Horny, satanic and apocalyptic aesthetics; my now rich, overfilled cup of tea; bringing to fruitful life a world of corruption and brutal blood. Visually beautiful in its verbose violence, heavy shadows and intense detail, both sickeningly grisly and endearingly stunning; even with the limitations of a 90s anime the look simply rips; all at once of course assisted by a dutifully enrapturing atmosphere partnered with a killer soundtrack; both the iconic “Theme of Guts” and end credits tune “Waiting So…

    “Life is a selfish act.”

    A bit drunk (with more beers to come) and a bit sick (not from COVID, thank god; from bad food and too much of it) I uh, made a fun decision and chose to watch for like, the 5th time, Gaspar Noe’s Climax. A bad choice, perhaps, (cause like, FUCK) but in afterthought perhaps a good choice- cause a slightly warped mental state might be the best way to watch this, and really, get it…

    ★★★★½

    Sean Baker moves his idiosyncratic gaze on Americana to look in on small town Texas and the apocalyptic arrival of the most American man to ever be; a self proposed “patriotic” and sleazy, slimy, manipulative sexual predator who extorts every last relationship for the last drop of cash. Bitingly funny yet so hum-drum; Simon Rex’s towering performance explodes so well when thrown into the natural dryness of small town living in the south; a tone and environment of pascal-coloured buildings…

    ★★★★½

    An opus, an odyssey, an oeuvre defining work of Varda’s otherworldly artistic skill and touch. Kinda fucking insane how fluently it balances such a wide breadth of confronting ideas fought over many years and across many stories but still formally remains such a cosy, gentle cinematic hug. Literally, some of the best colour in any film.

    David Fincher is finally making movies for this current point in time where I’m actually old to enough to see his films and appreciate them in a cinema

    And this film is going to be on NETFLIX.


    But I am ecstatic about this, best news I’ve heard in a while. Someone finally heard my prayers.

    ★★

    I couldn’t hear, I couldn’t think, and I couldn’t be bothered with this incomprehensible, joyless exposition dump. The plot is non-existent; the characters even less so, the music is just grating noise, the editing is rushed, the sound mixing is shamefully amateur and in the end it’s just a big, babbling blunder that’s obnoxiously hard to follow. This isn’t Nolan’s first bad film but it is definitely the first film of his where I struggled to find any enjoyment.
