    High Plains Drifter

    ★★★

    Works best as a story of a deal with the devil, where instead of taking souls he just torments capitalists with the terrors of collective living and removing class structures, but then there's a lot of rape and my headcanon falls apart and it's just a silly movie about ghost revenge and dwarfs.

  • The Commuter

    The Commuter

    ★★

    Almost the mirror version of Good Time except Liam Neeson is the least convincing liar ever. The Die Hard archetypal everyman this is based on is just clever enough to seem both relatable and smart, but here he’s such an unsubtle manic nut job that only his class/race/gender gets him as far as he does without being forcibly thrown from a train. Would be more interesting without the hostage situation, with only his briefly lost financial success determining where morality falls.

    After the Ball

    They say up to 75% of silent films have been destroyed. All those fat, misshapen asses, lost, like tears in the rain.
