    Sometimes a Great Notion

    ★★★★

    You know what’s an underrated film genre? Logging movies. Not Letterboxd logging, I mean movies about being a logger. Boy does Newman capture the awe and danger of the job/lifestyle, making you wonder how the actors and cameramen even got out of this film shoot alive. Toss in a delightfully sinister Henry Fonda, born-again Richard Jaeckel, level-headed fuck up Michael Sarrazin, and too manly to feel Newman himself — you got yourself a goddamn American film.

    Which is as flattering…

    ★★★★

    Embarrassed how long I had been putting this one off in fear I wouldn’t like it — of course I’d like this, it’s an irreverent acid western riffing on Christianity but without any sort of deep religious or philosophical commentary. Unless you want to count a comparison of the spiritually orgasmic experience of being touched by the Lord to that of finally taking one giant shit after days of constipation. Is this your card? Is this your card? Is this…

    Herostratus

    ★★★

    I’m an easy target for a three hour film based on one stupid joke premise like hiring a PR firm to help stage your suicide — it’s pretentious drivel but it’s my kinda pretentious drivel, you know? Unfortunately Herostratus is a disappointment, heavy on the pretentiousness and extremely low on the comedy. I didn’t laugh once though it had some moments of amusement. Made me miss Putney Swope which is far more clever and had way better joke commercials but this one…

    Dean Martin: King of Cool

    ★★★

    If you’re looking for a good 101 on why Dean Martin was so iconic and influential, this is a perfectly enjoyable documentary. Certainly a much better introduction than that POS fan-fiction biography by Nick Tosches. But unfortunately, predictably, this is such a conservative and sentimental doc it’s kind of a bummer to watch if you know anything about the man. The previously unseen archival footage is wonderful, theres some really fun interviews (RZA gets it), it’s a perfectly enjoyable two…

    Belladonna of Sadness

    Oh god, what a load of shit. The best I can say about this is that the illustration style is beautiful. Oh and if you ever wanted to see a clam go to town on a snail, or an alligator eat out a woman, this is the movie for you.

    This movie is for your penis, by your penis and about your penis. I'm having a very hard time seeing where anybody saw 'feminism' in this other than the weird…

    The Way We Were

    ★★★★

    This isn't the story about people who drift apart because of politics, this is the story of a woman with convictions (whether you agree with them or not) and intelligence, and a wuss-ass (drop dead beautiful) white boy who has never had to care about or fight for anything in his life.

    They're initially attracted to each other because they each have something the other wishes they could possess. For Redford, Streisand represents the exciting world of fringe living, of…
