    Yasujirō Ozu is out of Noriko territory and out of the happy go lucky landscape of the last few films to a couple that are a bit more of realists in the mundane blue collar work society, Ryō Ikebe as Shoji Sugiyama and his wife Masako Sugiyama played by actor Chikage Awashima.

    I'm enjoying the more adult narrative…

    Djibril Diop Mambéty's 1973 masterpiece theatre of a film is a little hard to watch if you love animals ~ fyi

    gay vs gay.

    felt like a sister film to There Will Be Blood.

    fantastic world building. fantastic acting. secret queer film. very, queer.

    Cumberbatch, Dunst, Smit-McPhee, and Plemons are a perfect quartet.

    very slow build, give it time. it really does land.

    it adds a more cinematic touch that Two Friends didn't have been for television. The difference in cameras and lenses is truly incredible and impacts the film in noticeable ways. in ways, you can see classic Jane Campion troupes become developed in this picture.

    the little girl singing, in the end, is the cherry on top of the pie.

    near perfect film that is a new Risky Business with more cinematic taste and style. better than any Superbad. 

    PTA is my favorite american director and he delivers yet again. 

    a love epic for the 70’s - my Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (I did not like that movie)

    these new leads are sublime and I want another slice.

    might be my favorite of 2021, with Cmon Cmon as my personal favorite…
