    The Manchurian Candidate

    ★★

    Holy wow, the 2004 Manchurian Candidate (Demme) feels like watching Qanon: The Movie. The paranoia, Hillary-loathing, microchip implants, sexual impotence, incoherent logic and did I mention the Hillary loathing?

    I wonder how Meryl Streep feels about that role now.

    ★★★★

    The propulsive momentum! The visceral feeling of action scene after action scene, and straining to keep up with the twists was amazing.

    Sure, I understand that reviewers weren't thrilled by the talkiness and byzantine structure surrounding a basic story. But wow. I have to give credit for inventing a new form of time travel movie, and I've always been a sucker for this kind of "puzzle" film (see: Mulholland Drive, Primer).
