    Chungking Express

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    "If memories could be canned, would they also have expiry dates? If so, I hope they last for centuries."

    The first half is a lonely, funny, jazzy escapade in the midnight of Hong Kong, electrifying and atmospheric, less so a romance than its other half but full of that same youthful energy. Violent, heartfelt, full of melancholy and soul for this pathetic, relatable guy and his heartbreak, and with a self-aware comedic center giving it some of the most comforting,…

    I kid you not, this is the next great movie of this generation.

    "Evelyn, I'm not your husband. I'm another version of him from another universe. I'm here because we need your help."

    Fervently original and unapologetically weird, the filmmaking duo aptly named 'Daniels' have made a creative masterwork only possible because they probably picked out every single emotion from the multiverse and piled them into a controlled, incoherent, cohesive, chaotic, singular movie. It had me sweating from laughter, almost…

    I want 10 copies of this from nyamazon

    "Our lives are only beginning. What lies ahead will take just a little bit longer."

    Sonny Boy feels like its own brand of surreal coming-of-age, a didactical venture into the unknown that’s infectious in its mellow maximalism, like a blanket of occasionally depressing but ultimately positive existentialism.

    It starts as an abstract Lord of the Flies, a subversion of the classic story but still conceptually akin. But beneath the societal outlines and…

    Stand by Me

    It’s obvious that this is tinted in nostalgia, and in equal parts covered in truth. When you’re barely a teenager you talk loud, you say things you don’t mean and you’re irrational about your emotions. The big ones, the real ones, aren’t really that easy to process. They say in the movie β€œact your age” but that’s exactly what they’re doing. Cursing up a storm, teasing their friends constantly, and having long discussions about nothing in particular. They’re either too…

    Film Club Pick #7
    Chosen by Alex (augustslayer)

    Ikiru is like watching the portrait of a man, a question on how to live when facing death, painted with memories. Admittedly, it also sometimes felt like watching that paint dry.

    Though I was largely disengaged from its first two acts, it was masterfully helmed self-discovery amidst the harrowing idea of facing your pain, your regret, and your mortality. It was agonizing at times, for the characters to leave the words in…
