  • The Aviator

    The Aviator


    I developed incredibly severe, debilitating OCD around the summer of 2014 — it’s something that still impacts every second of my life, fills me with intrusive thoughts that I either indulge in or push myself to combat at all times. Whenever I’m focusing on something, whether it’s work, social interactions, even just trying to relax and watch a movie, I’m simultaneously dealing with OCD compulsions and wanting to give into them.

    The last time I rewatched The Aviator was in…

    Rolling Thunder


    Most people probably become aware of Rolling Thunder through Tarantino’s adoration of it, and I think the way he describes it has led many astray — certainly looking at a lot of the 3 and 3.5 star reviews on Letterboxd where they describe it as not being as “graphic” and “hard-hitting” as they expected from what he has said lends credence to that belief.

    The reality is that Rolling Thunder has the veneer of an exploitation revenge thriller, but beneath…

    Been dealing with a really intense health scare this week so after a difficult day at the doctor I sought some relief in the comfort of my friends Max Cherry and Jackie Brown.

    Antoine Fuqua’s The American.

There’s something deeply troubling about Robert McCall in this one, with Denzel Washington channeling something guttural in his performance. Within the first ten minutes of this movie, we…

    Triangle of Sadness


    First section is okay, just not particularly fresh or insightful. “Rich people are evil narcissistic idiots” — yeah bro, I know. And?

    Second section is just this rinsed and repeated, followed up by an excruciatingly long gross-out comedy sequence that‘s about as sharp and tactful as I had come to expect after the low-hanging fruit we got leading up to it.

    Third section is one of the most interminable slogs I’ve seen in a while. A man completely running out…

    Don't Look Up

    The Other Guys is a sharper, more well-rounded satire than any of McKay’s last three movies. Can’t believe the man who created one of the true comedic masterpieces of the 21st century would turn into maybe the most annoying filmmaker working today. Felt actively angry the entire two and a half hours of this, and certainly not in the way McKay wants you to be. It reeks with that smug "I'm so much smarter than everyone" humor of Vice, similarly…
