    Barbarian

    ★½

    Nah. Really unsatisfying. The tone shifts and winking irony is annoying, not clever. Definitely unlike most movies but not in a good way. The monster is beyond stupid. Lacks narrative cohesion. Why TF call it Barbarian?!

    ★★★★

    Difficult, dark, but ultimately fascinating film. Visually striking, cinematography is great. Allegorical, a bit surreal. Somewhat opaque as well, it’s mysteries.

    Bullet Train

    ★★

    Dumb big loud long. Pitt couldn’t save it, nor the rest of the solid cast. What’s with all the white / Western characters on a Japanese bullet train? Totally squandered the setting with lame CGI, superficial Japanese culture. Tarantino wannabe in all the wrong ways, talk talk talk is cheap. It did have its moments, might classify as fun for some.

  • Triangle of Sadness

    Triangle of Sadness

    ★★★

    Not as good as Ostlund’s previous work but still has its moments. Some set pieces go on far too long, including the opening chapter and a wild sequence on the boat that’s pretty cool. Really, it should’ve all taken place on the boat and island. Some of it was pretty on the nose, but the change in power dynamics on the island was the best part. Ending fizzles.
