    brilliant.  i have no idea what actually happened.

    srsly this was nuts.  perfect sound design, performances, etc.  just wild.  really bold and probably the scariest movie i've ever seen in a theatre just bc the atmosphere is so oppressively fucked for the entire runtime (except the 10-15 minute period when it's the funniest weird movie of the 21st century so far).

    great!  laura dern is so real for this.

  • The Witch

    ★★★★½

    Wonder Woman 1984

    plot: a magic rock causes an incredibly confusing consideration(?)/accounting(?) of Middle Eastern politics in a truly tone-deaf and tasteless way.

    kind of impressive how hollow and open this movie is about its bootstrapping, imperialistic bullshit.  like, wow!  i'm beside myself.

    also, just not good.  awful effects and script, blah blah blah.  just...wow.

    i really enjoy the first movie, with all of its flaws.  it's so much fun!!  but this--no.

    i can't even formulate a real sentence about this right now.  at least i have a little bit of time before i actually have to be able to do that.

    needless to say, this movie absolutely rips.

    Kaufman's best work since Synedcoche, possibly even before that.

    no spoilers, but get ready for a complete mindfuck.
