I watch a movie, I write about it, repeat. It's a whole thing, you wouldn't understand.
fucking speechless. these past 2 holiday specials from Euphoria were, by far, better than the entirety of the actual series. Rue’s episode was a brutal stab in the heart. Jules’s episode is the cruel and oh so creative twisting of the knife. What an episode. I’ll let you all know when I stop profusely sobbing.
Yo holy f u c k. After re-watching The Endless (as I seep into Aaron Moorehead and Justin Benson’s stunning filmography), I had NO. CLUE. 🤯🤯🤯
Resolution was the only film I hadn’t seen by these two yet, and anyone familiar with Resolution — along with what Moorehead and Benson have been expertly crafting here — know precisely why I was fucking losing my collective mind after the opening scene. Zero fucking spoilers. RE: holy fuck.
P.S. I found this so much more cathartic watching after The Endless, because fuck chronological order. At any rate, WATCH BOTH RESOLUTION AND THE ENDLESS. I will leave it at that.
You know when a film feels like it’s in its final act the entire runtime yet cleverly manages to one-up itself at every turn until reaching an insane point of utter oblivion and mania? That’s precisely what Ready or Not is, meant entirely as a compliment. It’s a cult classic for the ages.
“Fucking rich people.”
Bong has yet to ever disappoint me, consistently one-upping his filmography with heavily philosophical and political scopes and virtues. It will be utterly astonishing if he can accomplish something of equal caliber (OR BETTER) in the future. There is a manner in which he manifests his eccentric and harshly realistic understandings and perspectives of societal and class structures that are both immensely funny and a gut-punch of self-awareness in the cyclical spectrum of humanism. Parasite starts off with a bang…
