    The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years

    ★★★★

    premier entry in the bozo canon, these dudes can't help but own themselves. RIP Lemmy, far and away the most sensible of the bunch, to whom Spheeris gives the most beautiful interview setting.

    The House That Jack Built

    ★½

    Jack stands in the alley holding and tossing aside signs that correlate with the voice-over, usually just listing mental health conditions, which "disturbingly" mirrors Bob Dylan in Don't Look Back. A highly specific provocation aimed at those who have seen that film, or at least its most iconic scene, but just as groan-worthy as everything else in the ridiculously overlong runtime.

    video messages from Dillon and von Trier welcoming and warning the audience preceded the screening, defining the film's gimmickry as something like a half-assed (if not quarter-assed) William Castle effort.

    "i took it as a learning lesson... i believe i'm an old soul"

    l m a o - this is the meanest shit ever, and i love it. doesn't hurt that i grew up on the other side of the hill from where they were scheming, and met tons of these rich calabasas kids at parties in high school. the type to simply get bored of asking their parents for money.

    Hotel by the River

    ★★★★

    it took a while to get used to Hong using handheld, but that ended up giving a great uneasy feeling to the comedy. a mix of two moods he presented last year; the hilarious and playful Claire's Camera, and the somber black and white reflections of The Day After, with a good dose of that film's romcom mix-ups.
