    The Green Knight

    ★★★★

    Gorgeous, unsettling, faithful. Alien yet intelligible, horror and fantasy, as all post-Holy Grail Arthuriana ought to be

    It may seem minor to you but I really wish this film evoked winter more than it did.

  • Coup de Grâce

    Coup de Grâce

    ★★★★

    An anomaly in the canon of 70s films about sexuality and fascism due to its 1919, Baltic setting, black and white photography, and general lack of detached gallows humor. Amazing wintry landscapes when it goes outdoors

    It's a Wonderful Life

    Sentimental sop once again arguing for the superiority of suburbanite WASPs; deeply racist undercurrent. The whole message of the film "don't desire a better life. just stick in your crummy dead town and sacrifice yourself for the vulgus"

    Rebecca

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Torn between identifying with the second Mrs. de Winters (ingénue, self-hating), Mrs. Danvers (obsessive, lesbian), or Rebecca herself (self-destructive)
