    The Breakfast Club

    ★★½

    There was this insane realiry MTV show where they went to different high schools and put the students in random groups and had everyone share their deepest secrets and The Breakfast Club was 1000% the inspiration for that.

    Hot take: this movie is boring.

    Allen's most meta? Lots to love, but honestly also a lot of problems. (I think this is the only Allen movie I've seen with more than one person of color and they are both sex workers, for example).

    I don't know how I lived so long without this movie. Like Werckmeister Harmonies, I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that this movie exists, and that it was made by humans.

    Apocalypse Now took me to a place no other film ever has. A place beyond reason, analysis, emotion.

    Are we even sure this whole film isn't just Martin Sheen tripping on whatever substance he's doing at the first? Was I tripping when I watched…

    Y'all, I don't know how I sat on this one for so long. This is an absolute masterpiece from start to finish.

    Thematically, the movie combines the chaos and nihilism of Ran with the brutality/beauty of The Revenant. I mean this movie is brutal, and no one gets out unscathed. But it's also astonishingly beautiful. I was also reminded of Tarr, Dreyer, Parajanov, and Tarkovsky at times. If that doesn't get you hype about this movie nothing will.
