    "How-a can I thinka of mah line-ah, when my father might-a be dropping a dah soap-a?!"

    Sir Ridley Scott's Gotti, but make it chic. Whatever he was trying to accomplish with The Counselor, he got it right on this take. Here's hoping Scott keeps working with Adam Driver. Both relatable-awkward Driver and commanding Gaga are great, but the real heart and soul of the film belong to Al Pacino (unsurprisingly) and Jared Leto's unapolegetically (undeniably insulting) campy take on Mario.…

    "Warning to viewers, screening for press and
    promotional purposes: This film contains several scenes with extraordinarily explicit sexual content (but it's a comedy)." - the preface attached to the screener.

    Winner of the Golden Bear and the official selection for Romanians Oscars submission this year, Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn is one of the funniest and COVID protocol depicted films of the year. A heavily satirical film where a well-respected teacher has to deal with the controversial incident that is…

    "I've seen The Road, and I won't live that lifestyle."

    What I expected The Humans to be, and yet I was still bored and disinterested. The characters are funner here, but this is far from the black comedy it marketed itself as. Good on Keira Knightley's agent letting her out of the stuck time machine, but I'd recommend The Mist and These Final Hours over this. Felt a little like a cut out Black Mirror episode, and the premise of this first time director's in-production sophomore film—Conception—doubles down on that statement.

    "I saw your boobs. I saw them."

    Christ isn't the only thing that's risen. I've seen plenty of fully naked nuns, and Inquisition style torturing of nuns, but I can't say I've ever seen two nuns sensually taking a shit together—in which one teaches rhe other how to wipe with hay. Hats off to our beloved pervy sage, Paul Verhoeven. But, all in all this partly black comedy indictment of the Church was far less spicy than I wanted and…

    "Tomorrow you'll know I wasn't kidding, and you'll think I was crazy. But I figured it this way: better to be king for a night than schmuck for a lifetime!"

    Oh, I'm sorry. My apologies, that's from the wrong film. Here we go, I think it's this one:

    "All the animals come out at night - whores, skunk pussies, buggers, queens, fairies, dopers, junkies, sick, venal. Someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets". …

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    "A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later." - Stanley Kubrick

    This quote from one of the GOATs of cinema really came to mind while experiencing this soon to flop excellent poetic space odyssey. And I make it a point of importance to use the word "odyssey", not because of the obvious comparisons…
