    Gais. All I knew was there was an iconic landlady with her hair in curlers. Al said "It's really nonsense" and I was like yeah okay. I WAS NOT PREPARED FOR THIS.

    ★★★½

    Okay, this isn't my usual sort of thing, but I needed something low-stakes and distracting, and honestly it was super fun. Also now I finally understand about Kristen Stewart.

    Okay but why was the bat Filipino

  • I Care a Lot

    I Care a Lot

    ★★★

    This film was distressing to start with and then an improvement once I realised there was a high chance Marla would die. Like other reviews note, this film seemed a bit confused about what it wanted to be or what it was trying to tell us, but Jennifer was a delight at least.

    This was so cute. It's a pretty simple story but you don't know how it's going to turn out, and the sets and colours are a delight.

    You know what, I really like this. At first it's like, oh god is this just going to be about insufferable hipsters in an AirBnB. But it's not, and I like how you gradually get a glimpse into each character's story, and somehow it made me nostalgic for the folks I used to hang out with in New Zealand even though this is definitely not set in New Zealand. Also I love Regular Helen and how from her first appearance she seems like the odd one out but is just so unapologetically herself.

    I think I was really into this?

    Romy and Michele's High School Reunion

    ★★★

    Finally watched this! All I knew was that people are fond of it, I think? So I had no idea where it was going or what mood it was trying to convey. It's okay, I guess? Could live without the instances of fatphobia (I was so confused whether all the diet/weight loss stuff was intended to be a joke about thin people talking nonsense, but it didn't really come across that way). It could move a bit faster but it's entertaining enough.

    The Daytrippers

    ★★★★

    I've seen this a bunch of times and I'm still fond of it. It's such a good study of different personality types and family dynamics.

  • Chanthaly

    ★★★½

    It was a little slow-paced but not to the point of becoming a problem for me, and I liked the twist two thirds of the way through. Keen to check out Mattie Do's other films.

    Btw you can watch it online here: youtu.be/oYTUlMKd_BI
    I found it via this thread of free online Southeast Asian films: twitter.com/pbpua/status/1348241169436741633
