    Buffalo '66

    ★★★★★

    “You look like a little boy in the bathtub.”

    In one of the absolute finest pictures of all time Vincent Gallo explores a world of blame and hurt; a promise written in stone, supposedly irreversible only to be changed by the dedication of a gentle touch. Vincent Gallo’s “Billy” looks at how a less than traditionally paternal upbringing can guise in tremendous results. It’s built not of a single detrimental blow, but of small deteriorated slights that chip away at…

    Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion

    ★★★★★

    [1000TH REVIEW]

    “I still have no idea how to find happiness...but I’ll just stay here”. 

    This film is extremely important to me, as is the entire series. Neon Genesis and Twin Peaks are two pieces of fiction that have irreversibly changed the way I think; both in cinematic terms and otherwise. This film has so much to unpack, and while there are small details that reveal the bigger mosaic, yet I think the *feeling* of End of Evangelion and the…

    I love Spike Lee, I love basketball, I love father-son stories, so of course this was a home run.

    “Ooh child things are gonna get easier”

    Very homegrown and sincere work from Spike that has been unfortunately overlooked in his filmography as it really has no “drive” as you just join this family through a year or so as they go through ups and downs. I love how dynamic their situation is as it really reflects real families. It’s not always easy nor hard, yet throughout all of it there’s still this ongoing love that is really present. A…

    WHAT DID JACK DO?

    ★★★★

    Short Review:

    Here’s everything I’ve found about What Did Jack Do? I’m fairly sure it’s not available online — legal or otherwise — and as far as I’ve seen there aren’t any indications of it being included on a home release; though it’s a possibility. 

    I found it was screen at this film festival in 2017 and the link I added takes you to a FaceBook post with much more context and background. Though I’m assuming it’s a masterpiece, I doubt…

  • High Life

    High Life

    ★★★★½

    “My body obeys me.”

    Essentially capturing everything that makes science-fiction; universal and human themes with a technologically advanced setting. Claire Denis’s hypnotizing effect completely entranced me with her patient storytelling, a singular moment in the desolate nothingness has never felt more human.

    A spellbinder to be sure, a film leaving you with more questions than answers, it’s sexual duality is impeccable never really cementing a narrative, leaving the viewer to take everything in as they will.

    A detached experience that…
