    it speak to puiu's skill at blocking and shot composition that this remains visually interesting and dynamic for three and a half hours despite primarlily taking place in two or three adjacent rooms. beyond that, ymmv extensively depending on how much interest or even patience you have for prolonged philosophical debate. some of the conversations were much more compelling for me than others, and i thought some of the ideas running below the surface to be worth thinking about (e.g.…

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

    hey not my relative so ignore me ig but i find putting a recording of your dead grandmother breaking down and sobbing in a fashion ad about being bored in your apartment to be kinda gross!

  • JFK

    JFK

    this is like the ultimate boomer soft lefty/lib movie because it has a ton of really riveting discussion of the CIA's role in foreign coups and great editing that manages to communicate a deep distrust of authority and the state on a fundamental structural level but it's all mixed in with a big gay panic sex party where tommy lee jones is painted gold and kevin costner almost crying talking about how cool and anti-establishment (???) jfk was

  • She Dies Tomorrow

    She Dies Tomorrow

    pretty good!! i think seimetz' formal prowess is pretty much unparalleled— as is her ability to craft a mood (in this case, an unendingly crushing apocalyptic one). both of these are reason enough to watch this, even if i personally didn't really find much to grab onto beyond a pretty powerful feeling of doom (at least, a more powerful one than usual)

  • Girl 6

    Girl 6

    some really phenomenal jump-cut jokes in this, and just generally great editing alongside a wonderful performance from theresa randle. i'm no expert on the subject so don't yell at me but i found the approach to sex work here to be shockingly deft and thoughtful for a film from the 90s— going to go ahead and credit suzan-lori parks for that, and the insightful comparisons between phone sex and being a black woman in media. there's also some of that…
