    The Night Comes for Us

    ★★★

    Far too long, but when it gets violent: IT. GETS. RAD.

    ★★★★½

    So here's my thing with this film. I loved it, but I know for a fact I missed the point Bresson is making about grace. Instead I saw this film as a repudiation of faith and the embrace of nihilism. And it still worked.

    Why? Why did I watch this? For whatever reason I find almost all of Dreyer's films infuriating, chock full of insufferable characters with few or no redeeming characteristics- this is one of those movies. And the ending? Fuck. That. Noise. Go watch The Passion of Joan of Arc instead, THAT is a great movie.

    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★★½

    Ummmmm, this is spectacular?

    The production design is gorgeous at every gritty, rain-soaked turn.
    The lighting is a character unto itself. Literally.
    The sound design is amazing.
    Harrison Ford has never been better.
    Jared Leto is genuinely unnerving.
    Robin Wright is magnificent.
    Ryan Gosling takes on the perpetually-beaten gumshoe archetype like it was made for him.
    The visuals on the digital overlay sex scene alone deserve an Oscar.
    And ROGER FREAKIN DEAKINS.

    Splendiferous.
