Total Dunce, no idea what makes a good movie
If it's got two people falling in love I'll probably like it

    A joke:
    Ryusuke Hamaguchi, Hong Sang-Soo, Éric Rohmer and Abbas Kiarostami get into a car. During the five hour drive, no one speaks a word.

    An audience member got up to leave the screening because he couldn't take any more and collapsed trying to open the door. This was 20 minutes in.

    Well crafted, but I don't know if any of what Peele is going for here really amounts to anything. As opposed to a film like Get Out, Nope doesn't feel like it's productively about something, or that any of it actually has meaning. It sure is entertaining, but I don't think Peele and I are gonna be the best of friends.

The mise en scène exhibits images only analogue can deliver, and a soundtrack of synths and piano transported me to a different plane of existence. I am floored, the film works very exquisitely and carefully to create a delicate space between the characters that allows for…

    It's nice. Very inoffensive and easily digestible, a Berlinale winner to satisfy everyone. It's just not bad, that's kind of it. I see why the jury likes it, and I suppose many others will also love it, but I thought it was just good. Don't get me wrong, I think it's not bad, because I think it's good, but I wish it was better than it is, which is not bad. Nothing about it really sticks out to me, though.…
