    Joker

    ★★½

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

    Gave it a second watch despite my first opinion being mostly, “not bad, never want to think about it again!” after reading a couple of positive lefty takes on it and my opinion has shifted to “uuuuuuuggggghhh, never want to think about it again”

    I stand by this being extremely engaging in any scenes that are just Phoenix or are ratcheting up to Phoenix doing some Joker stuff and that final talk show really manages to strike a special unease…

    Just as electric the second time.


    Two things stood out to me. 

    One thing I didn’t notice, both the father (Song Kang Ho) and the man in the basement worked together?!? They both mention that the last their job they had was a Taiwanese cake shop that closed down. 

    An other thing I read into was the family is gifted a symbol made to grant upward mobility (from a character whose main trait is “went to college”) that is just used to bludgeon other poor people.


    Both showings felt like I got the opportunity to see Rear Window with a fresh audience in 1954. A gd moment.

    John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

    ★★★★

    The John Wick movies are a miracle. Their continued success is a miracle.

    Speed Racer

    ★★★★★

    Beautiful, huge, ambitious and uncompromisingly sincere. No movie has better depicted the compromises made by an artist in a capitalist society or the positive effect of a strong and loving support system. 
    The Wachowkis should be protected at all costs.
