    Sukiyaki Western Django

    Afterthoughts: Another laugh riot, from one of cinema's most productive and downright strange auteurs.

    I love this film so much, and upon what is now my 4th viewing, the novelty has still not worn off! This Kurosawa-Leone-Tarantino mashup is one of those perfect 'show your friends' kinda films; one you thought could only possibly exist in your wildest dreams.

    Miike references, homages and parodies all the generic conventions of both the samurai and spaghetti western classics of old in the…

    Afterthoughts: Why is 1960s Czech filmmaking the best thing ever!? They really push the boundaries of film language, which doesn’t seem to have been truly appreciated yet.

    This is a great tennis match between hilarious and deeply unsettling, and in the final 15 minutes, deeply unsettling pulls ahead to make it game set and match, that’s for sure.

    Lead actor, Rudolf Hrusínsky, really reminded me of a less grotesque yet all the more unnerving Laurence R. Harvey from The Human…

    Afterthoughts: Man, these Safdies are so fucking talented.

    Why on Earth I still haven’t watched Uncut Gems yet I do not know!

  • The Reef

    The Reef

    Afterthoughts: Wow, this might be the only good shark film that isn’t Jaws.

    While it is severely lacking in Shark-related deaths, it has the upper hand on most contemporary shark films in that the sharp-toothed killer isn’t awful CGI - it’s cleverly blended real shark footage.

    Also, for the most part, the characters are not stupid or annoying as fuck, meaning you actually don’t want them to die for once.

    Trust the Aussies to get it right.

    Definitely gamerporn. Cool aesthetic. But too gamerporn-emphatic. Perverts.

    Fellini Satyricon

    ★★★★★

    Afterthoughts: Fellini’s orgiastic odyssey through Ancient Rome is a sheer, debauched delight.

    Gliding seamlessly from one erotic and extravagant episode to the next, Fellini takes us on a richly symbolic journey of sex and violence that beams with colourful sights and sounds, critiquing the consumerist hedonism of capitalist modernity, whilst offering an eccentric look at one of history's most interesting civilisations.

    Similarly to the films of Alejandro Jodorowsky, it is a great joy to see Fellini granted all the necessary…
