    MARTIN EDEN 110120:

    been obsessively thinking about this since i saw it, so bought another virtual ticket to rewatch. love it. it's the best of the year. smart & an evolution of ideas that's so natural. a stunning audio-visual feast. Luca Marinelli's performance is impeccable -- one of the best i've seen, bar none.

    "those who build prisons don't express themselves as well as those who build freedom."

    visually decadent. such a clever flare of modernity layered over affectations that humanize this period piece. Dunst is great, and despite her Marie Antoinette being a vain, ostentatious royal, Coppola is able to elicit sympathy for the titular character. she's met with misfortune as a product of her juvenile tendencies, but she's in that position as a result of an awful, ritualistic system that thrusts the unprepared forward and provides little support for anyone looking to do better.

    "all you'll need to do is walk up the stairs."

    also watched the fascinating interview with Bong Joon-ho on the criterion disc.
