    Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    ★★★★

    Does what it sets out to do masterfully, great feminist and feminine movie. Some great musical moments especially the acapella chanting. Unfortunately what it sets out to do is a little limited imo and I was left a little underwhelmed. Still a fantastic film though.

  • Long Day's Journey Into Night

    Long Day's Journey Into Night

    ★★★

    The most egregious case of style over substance I’ve seen in a while. But it was perfectly what I wanted tonight. My love for slow cinema is undiminished, even by relatively mediocre copycats like this, and the experience was certainly an aesthetically pleasant one.

    Third viewing, in the theater with a date this time, really caught every line of dialogue and there isn’t a single wasted one. Viewing it through the lens of Rick as America really drew attention to all the jokes about isolationism and gave the movie a great second layer as war propaganda. 

    It crackles and soars like maybe no other movie I know. The love melodrama is pushed perhaps ever so slightly too far, but other than that a perfect movie and one of my very favorites.

    Why do I even watch anything other than French New Wave?
