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

    This is why you should never have sex while listening to Mariah Carey’s “Always Be My Baby.”

    I hope this gets nominated for an Oscar because I want to hear someone say the title on live TV.

    This movie is magical.
    I’ve recommended it to people who don’t like Talking Heads, and they loved it.
    I’ve recommended it to people who don’t like documentaries, and they loved it.

    I feel like I’ve already seen most of the movies that are typically considered the “best silent films” so it’s been years since I’ve watched a silent movie that genuinely impressed me. But this completely blew me away. Germaine Dulac is a legend in my eyes for making such a bold film 100 years ago.

    This actually made me bump Safety Last! down on my list of favorite movies of 1923.

    Half my theater was miserable or laughing throughout the film and mocked it while walking out of the theater. But Malick & Lubezki could make a film that consisted of nothing more than flies swarming around a pile of dog shit and I would still consider it art. So naturally I loved this. Fuck what anyone else thinks.

    This might actually be my favorite Malick film, but it's very difficult for me to even choose a favorite. Everything he does is completely mesmerizing that I'd almost feel bad to say that I liked one of his films more than the rest of his filmography.

    The best part about all the “Barbenheimer” memes is that both movies ultimately lived up to the hype. We got two masterpieces on the same day. What a time to be alive!
