    Pink Narcissus


    Pink Narcissus features several of the most inspired cuts and scene transitions I have ever seen. This is basically the pinnacle of cinema as far as I’m concerned.

    I love watching this movie with people who have never seen it and have no idea what they're about to experience.

  • Nomadland



    This is dimestore Roberto Minervini, starring a cardboard cutout of Frances McDormand opposite a cast of non-actors, who are drained of any depth by the camera's (and McDormand's) contempt.

    While ostensibly about the difficulties of living in America, Nomadland is a plodding series of inconsequential speedbumps across an incoherent geographical route, mashed together with some impressively juvenile editing & lazy shot composition.

    I stared at my ceiling fan as the over-eager soundtrack signaled precisely what and when I should feel, and hated every second of it.
