    A rush. Damn near exactly what you’d want out of a movie w/ That Premise. Operates like a well tuned, well oiled machine. Having it be thrust onto a streaming service leaves me feeling cheated. This would kill in a dark theatre, amongst a rowdy crowd.

    Is this a shameless, routine, vibe while high watch? Believe. Dude’s living the dream going store to store, system to system, delivering records. Love how this is low key a neo-realist film in the ‘Bicycle Thieves’ mold.

    Masterpiece. Paul Schrader has captured post-Trump malaise better than any film I’ve seen since the election, whether intentional or not. In the climate we find ourselves in the observant are often burdened by a toxic amount of uncertainty and anger. With this in mind Schrader asks, How is it we try and justify the notion of hope when you can’t ignore the chaos in front and ahead of us? Heavy but necessary.

    So, yeah, the lead of the movie is all for Hong Kong cops busting heads for the status quo. I mean, there’s always the possibility this lady’s been coerced by Pooh Bear’s Chinese gov’t - “Just China Things”. Until that’s proven to be the case - it won’t - you might as well not see 'Mulan'. I kind of planned on giving this a shot up until now, tbh. Blow.
